Jacobs Engineering Group, one of the four companies to be contracted as a major service provider (MSP) to Defence’s Capability, Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG), has partnered with Beca for the contract.

The MSP is a new CASG initiative designed to enable longer periods of above-the-line contracting to provide greater business surety, reducing costs and enhancing value for money outcomes for Department of Defence programs.

The new approach aims for CASG to more effectively engage with industry to better leverage resources and experience, and ensures an enhanced and sustainable industry capability exists to support Commonwealth work requirements.

Jacobs said the work promotes collaborative behaviours, and strategic, co-operative and constructive working relationships between the Commonwealth and industry.

"Jacobs and Beca are committed to working collaboratively with Defence," said Darren Kraabel, senior vice president at Jacobs Aerospace and Technology.

"Trust, integrity and honesty will underpin our partnership going forward. The partnership will enable the team to significantly expand its engagement with Australian small business to quickly deliver the innovative solutions required by Defence."

Beca managing director for Australia Craig Lee said partnering with Jacobs to deliver the MSP services was a natural fit for both organisations.

"Our partnership with Jacobs is strong and enduring; in fact it precedes the MSP. We recognised early on that our shared approach to delivering results for our clients is what brings us together and will keep us together," Lee said.

Beca has a long history of working with the Defence sector, working within the areas of assets, infrastructure, processes and systems.

Nova Systems Australia, Kellogg Brown & Root and Downer EDI Engineering Power were the three other companies selected by Defence to be MSPs last month. Defence said by mid-2018 a further tranche of service provider arrangements will be delivered and the new Defence Services Support Panel will also make available the expertise of over 350 SMEs to support Defence in delivering capability.
