$95.5m contract awarded for Defence ERP program

The Department of Defence has awarded a $95.5 million contract to IBM to deliver the initial design of the Defence Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) program.

The ERP program plans to roll out initial capability for finance reporting in 2020, followed by a larger logistics and maintenance capability in 2022.


The program is Defence’s largest-scale information communication technology transformation program, which will meet Australian Defence Force demands as it modernises capabilities and builds high-performing supply chains.

The program will progressively deliver solutions that will affect every Defence member and transform the way Defence does business.

It will provide a near real-time view of critical information across Defence to better inform decision making.

ERP will modernise, integrate and transform Defence's approach to managing its finances, human resources, logistics, engineering, maintenance and estate.



The IBM contract will see the provision of system integrator services to deliver the design phase of tranche one of the capability.

It will also cover the high-level design for subsequent ERP tranches and set the foundation elements for finance and human resources.

The ERP program is an essential enabler of the Defence reform agenda outlined in the first principles review, and tranche one will provide enterprise logistics and land materiel maintenance functions.
