According to a release from Minister Conroy’s office, the recent summit agreed on milestones to be achieved prior to the end of the year. The milestones include an integrated master schedule fundamental to planning the schedule and cost of the revised delivery pathway.
At the last summit in March, the summit attendees agreed on a contract master schedule.
The summits bring together industry stakeholders, Defence officials, and the minister to remediate listed projects.
Minister Conroy thanked Thales Australia and Airservices Australia for their commitment to the process.
“I’d like to thank the company, Defence officials, and other senior representatives for coming together again to discuss what needs to happen next to deliver this project. I’m looking forward to another summit before the end of the year,” Minister Conroy said.
“Despite the challenges faced by the Civil Military Air Traffic Management System project, the government remains committed to delivering a safe air traffic management capability.
“Through holding regular Project of Concern Summits, the government is restoring momentum to the remediation process and ensuring Defence, Thales, and Airservices Australia deliver on the agreed remediation plan.”
