  • Tents;
  • Tarpaulins;
  • Mail bags; and
  • Field furniture.

The new contract will form a new standing offer deed agreement, creating a rolling renewal contract aimed at reducing the administrative burden on Australian industry, and providing successful tenderers with greater assurance of work.

Valued at over $2 million, Minister for Defence Industry Melissa Price said the 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 Morrison government is focused on a strong and agile partnership between industry and Defence.

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