Strategic Procurement Outlook

The mission of the Department of Defence (Defence) is to defend Australia and its national interests. In fulfilling this mission, Defence serves the Australian Government and is accountable to the Commonwealth Parliament. Procurement of a diverse range of goods and services to support Defence's business in a manner that ensures the proper use of Commonwealth resources is enhanced by strategic planning. Defence complies with the Commonwealth Procurement Rules (CPRs) when considering spending proposals and conducting procurements. The CPRs are applied to Defence's procurements through the Accountable Authority Instructions and supporting departmental guidelines.

Given the vast range of goods and services procured annually in support of Defence's mission, it is vital to provide industry with advance notification of major and strategic procurement opportunities planned. The Defence Annual Procurement Plan (APP) articulates the potential procurement opportunities. The scope, scale, schedule, risk profile and complexity of individual planned procurements listed in the Defence APP differ across various procurement categories such as Logistics, ICT, Defence estate management, construction services and capability acquisition and sustainment.

In general, planned procurements with a total estimated value of $1million (GST inclusive) and above are included in the Defence APP. Potential suppliers should be aware that an APP is a planning document and that strict adherence to information contained in the Defence APP is not expected. Defence will endeavour to amend and update relevant details of the APP as required.
