Defence assessment to help chart the future
The local defence industry has been called on to take part in an assessment, which will later be used to help create a WA Directory of Defence Industry Capabilities.
TCF Services has been engaged by the office of Defence West to assess the State’s industrial, research and development and education and training capabilities in the defence sector.
Results from the assessment will later help create the directory, as well as assisting Defence West and the State’s Defence Advocate to promote WA’s capability to the Federal Government, defence contractors and international markets. The information will also be cross-referenced with the Federal Government’s Defence Integrated Investment Program, which details $195 billion in planned defence expenditure.
This work will enable Defence West to provide targeted advice to businesses, particularly small to medium enterprises, and to inform WA’s Defence Strategy, due next year. The assessment aims to capture companies which aspire to enter defence markets or have an innovative product or service potentially applicable to defence, as well as existing suppliers.
