GATINEAU, Quebec, June 10 (UPI)


The Canadian government has sent a third questionnaire to industry to gauge potential offset benefits to local businesses if it replaces its CF-18 fighter jet.


Public Works and Government Services Canada said the questionnaire from the National Fighter Procurement Secretariat supports a "rigorous examination" of available fighter aircraft options against the missions outlined in the Canada First Defense Strategy and will complement previous questionnaires on capability, production and supportability and price of new aircraft.


"Engaging with industry is consistent with the secretariat's commitment to transparency and openness, and integral to an evaluation of options process," it said.


"The evaluation of options to replace Canada's CF-18 fleet is part of the government's Seven Point Plan launched in response to Chapter 2, Replacing Canada's Fighter Jets, of the Auditor General of Canada's 2012 Spring Report. Until the Seven-Point Plan is complete, the government will not make a decision on the replacement for the CF-18 fighter jets and all options remain on the table. "
