CSG Paper No. 6 - The Foundation for Defence Procurement Reform in Ukraine By: Antoine Vandemoortele | Ukraine | Jul 6, 2016

The Centre for Security Governance has just published its latest CSG Paper, “The Foundation for Defence Procurement Reform in Ukraine” written by CSG Senior Fellow Ross Fetterly.




Given the current security environment in Ukraine, the need to undertake fundamental reform in management of defence resources in that sector is essential. The focus of this paper is to provide a governance framework for such transformational reform in procurement that could be applied in Ukraine. The three core elements that comprise the foundation for this defence procurement reform are: development of a defence industry strategy, selecting a defence procurement strategy and reform of the defence industrial base. The paper argues that the Ukraine capital equipment program is central to a defence strategy articulated by the government, and reform of both the defence industrial base and capital equipment procurement process are primary enablers that will facilitate strategy execution. With the two primary priorities in the Ukraine defence sector of greater security and greater effectiveness of its state institutions, reform of the defence procurement process will contribute to strengthening capacities and effectiveness in both areas.
