Speaking at an event in Canberra on Monday, Kate Louis from the Defence Industry Policy Division said the industry has shown its support for the development of the Defence Industrial Capability Plan (DICP), declaring the industry “open for business”.

"Over 1,200 responses have already been received for the Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group's (CASG) survey to support development of Defence Industrial Capability Plan," Louis said.

Louis said the survey will explore, plan and develop industry capabilities and it is still open to those who have not yet completed it.

The first proposal under the new Innovation Hub, located in Adelaide, is also imminent and the company will be advised this week, said Louis.

Louis also said planning for the industry's future is well underway, with progress being made in leaps and bounds.

"We [CASG] are the artillery doing the long range work while the infantry are the projects coming behind us," Louis said.

"Infrastructure, process and action are underway to start delivering defence industry purchase orders."

Louis mentioned that those looking to engage with the defence industry should be communicating with the Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC). 

"CDIC is the front door for doing business with defence and is the place to send innovation proposals," she said.

Deputy Secretary at CASG Kim Gillis also spoke at the event and said that despite obstacles and the criticism the defence industry has faced over the years, improvement within the sector is happening and is ongoing.

"We don't want artificial barriers to stop industry doing business and break down stovepipes," Gillis said.

"Improvement is ongoing. We [the industry] will be easier, better and cheaper to do business with."
