Virtual Event: Defence Procurement 2021

Supporting Defence Force Capability Through Procurement Innovation

Wednesday, 24th March 2021
9:00 AM - 11:00 AM AEDT

Agenda Overview

With a $270 billion investment from the Australian Government over the next decade on defence capabilities, moving toward a more strategic, efficient and collaborative procurement model is paramount to ensuring pipeline initiatives are streamlined and delivered in a timely, cost effective manner.

Developing and executing a strategic procurement strategy, and establishing long-term strategic partnerships with suppliers to foster better outcomes are just some of the ways Australia’s leading defence agencies are moving toward delivering better success.

The complimentary Defence Procurement Virtual Event will bring together local and international experts to explore how to  leverage data and analytics to identify areas for improvement to advance innovation, reduce barriers and work towards a value-based procurement.
