With over $200bn being invested by the Commonwealth Government into building a sovereign defence capability in Australia, defence-related opportunities for SMEs have never been more important.
To gain entry into Defence supply chains for large Defence projects, SMEs must demonstrate that they have a track record of delivery. For this reason, it is essential that SMEs take every opportunity to build up a portfolio of public works. All of our members have access to the tenders page of our website. where they can find a diverse range of tender opportunities from state, territory and Commonwealth governments. While not all of these tenders are defence-related, all of them will provide you with opportunities to develop a strong and relevant portfolio.
