Building Australia's defence supply capabilities

Defence Employment Industries Australia

This report presents an analysis to underpin a national workforce development strategy for the Defence industry, and provides recommendations on options to improve skills supply to the industries to better position them to take part in Defence acquisition and sustainment procurements over the next decade.

The report is based on consultation with industry and relevant organisations including representatives from government, education and training institutions, industry associations, Defence industry, and unions. The report concludes that organisations competing for Defence procurement contracts require a balance of professional, trade, technical and managerial skills, and an ongoing commitment to skills development and upskilling to ensure the currency of these skills.
