Minister for Defence Industry Melissa Price said the $2 million deal would provide Australian industry with an opportunity to secure work over an initial three-year period, with options for extensions.

“This approach will enable the rolling replacement of existing stock, ensuring a continuous supply of high-quality canvas products for a range of ADF activities,” Minister Price said.

The new contract will form a new Standing Offer Deed agreement, reducing the administrative burden on Australian industry, and providing successful tenderers with greater assurance of work.

“The government is focused on a strong and agile partnership between industry and Defence,” Minister Price said.

“We are working to deliver the best capability to our service women and men, while maximising opportunities for Australian industry participation at a local and national level.”
