Defence Policy for Industry Participation
On behalf of the ADA national partnership, ADA(Vic) recently provided a unified submission to the Commonwealth Government and the Department of Defence on the draft Defence Policy for Industry Participation (DPIP). The intent of the DPIP is to provide more granular breakdowns of Australian Industrial Capability (AIC) planning and guidelines.
We anticipate that as submissions are reviewed, we will be engaged by the Department for further discussion.
Defence Industry Skilling and STEM Strategy
The ADA is currently reviewing the draft Defence Industry Skilling and STEM Strategy for comment and submissions into the Commonwealth Government and the Department of Defence. Our focus is to ensure that adequate funding and training opportunities are identified by the Commonwealth, to ensure the workforce capabilities required to enhance and grow our sovereign defence industry are in place.
