The Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) will implement a managed clothing solution for operational clothing and footwear known as the Operational Clothing and Footwear Consolidated Contract (OCFC2). This modern procurement vehicle will reduce contract management overhead, reduce inventory management and distribution costs, and provide improved responsiveness and support to the Canadian Armed Forces.


The OCFC2 initiative will consolidate multiple individual contracts for operational clothing and footwear items into a single contract. This contract will be similar in nature to the consolidated contract already in place for CAF environmental service dress uniforms. For all items stipulated under the OCFC2 contract, the prime vendor will be responsible for their acquisition as well as inventory and distribution management. The contract will also include provisions for the development of a direct delivery system between the contractor and the individual military member for selected items.
