INVESTMENT DETAILS

3.1 LIST AND DESCRIPTION OF INDIVIDUAL INVESTMENTS

This section provides a project-by-project breakdown of the Planned Investment table (Table 6) presented in Section 2.1. The investments are presented in the same order and are divided by asset categories: Program Infrastructure and Fleet. Large Vessel Procurement investments have been isolated from other Fleet investments to form a third asset category.

3.1.1 Program Infrastructure Investments

The investments outlined below respect Coast Guard’s ongoing philosophy of attempting to maintain assets in baseline condition while keeping pace with technological change. These investments will enable the ongoing delivery of programs for the duration of the five-year investment planning horizon.

3.1.3 Large Vessel Procurement Investments

Large Vessel Procurement investments have been isolated from the other Fleet investments due to their order of magnitude and large financial requirements. Together, the investments presented in Section 3.1.2 and the Large Vessel Procurement Investments listed below form a cohesive long-term investment vision for the Canadian Coast Guard fleet.

3.2 INVESTMENTS BY PROGRAM ACTIVITY ARCHITECTURE

Like all Government of Canada departments and agencies, Coast Guard’s assets must be organized in the context of a Program Activity Architecture (PAA). For more information on Coast Guard’s PAA, please refer to CCG’s annual business plan which can be found on the Agency’s website at http://www.ccg-gcc.gc.ca/eng/CCG/Publications.

The planned level of investment in each program activity during the 2011/12 to 2015/16 planning horizon is demonstrated in the following table:
