A key focus of this report is investigating whether regions, local communities and businesses have sufficient awareness of and effective access to information about the plans to upgrade Defence training facilities so that they can be in a position to offer goods and services.

In addition to looking at channels of communication, the committee spoke with businesses currently working with Defence to hear what has assisted them and those who may wish to do business in order to understand what assistance may be required.

The committee is also interested in the communication of Defence with stakeholders in the local communities who will be affected by the upgrades, particularly in relation to land acquisition, as well as communication channels regarding existing training activities.
