Summary: Through the University of Ottawa submission, there are several re-occurring themes: flexibility, timeliness, and simplification. Government support for BERD and private partnership with the university sector must begin to follow the trend away from 'red-tape' and provide assistance in a timely fashion. Furthermore, the current myriad of federal and provincial programs which weave across the tax system, the granting councils, government departments, and arm's length organizations may be individually tailored to meet specific needs, but also create a challenge in navigation for both the public and private sectors.
