CCC Environmental Assessment Policy
In June of 2010, CCC’s Board of Directors formalized its environmental review process by adopting a CCC Environmental Assessment Policy. The policy mirrors the requirements of the CEAA, and provides guidelines for obtaining and reviewing environmental assessments based on CEAA standards—including the CEAA’s Projects Outside Canada Environmental Assessment Regulations. When CCC projects are funded through export credit agencies or international organizations such as the World Bank, the Corporation reviews the environmental assessments completed for these institutions to assure that the project will not significantly impact the environment.
CCC Fees generated by CCC’s participation in transactions is the key funding source for the Corporation to continue to participate in projects outside of the Defence Production Sharing Agreement (DPSA) program. The CCC Pricing Policy provides direction to staff on the pricing of CCC’s services.
As a Federal Crown Corporation, CCC operates at arm’s length from the Canadian government and in accordance with commercial principles. In support of our mandate CCC is required to purchase goods and services to meet corporate requirements.
As outlined in the Purchasing Policy, enacted in 2005 and updated in October 2015, CCC will purchase goods and services in a manner that is professional, efficient, effective, and economical and in accordance with applicable legislation and trade agreements. This Policy applies to all staff of the Corporation as it pertains to the administrative purchases of goods and services for the benefit of CCC and/or its employees and supersedes any prior policy.
