The Department of Defence’s Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG) has released a request for information (RFI) relating to F-35A Joint Strike Fighter components.

The Department of Defence’s Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG) has released a request for information (RFI) relating to F-35A Joint Strike Fighter components.

The RFI description reads it is an "invitation to register to establish 18 prequalified lists for each repair technology group (RTG) to provide maintenance, repair, overhaul and upgrade (MRO&U) services for F-35 Air Vehicle Components".

The closing date and time for the RFI is 17 July at 10am (ACT local time).

Australia has ordered 72 F-35As, with potential for a fourth Australian squadron that would bring the number to 100.

Earlier this month, Minister for Defence Industry Christopher Pyne said over 50 Australian companies have already participated in production supply chains to provide high-end solutions to the JSF capability.

"Australian industry is benefiting greatly from participation as a key strategic partner in the F-35 Program," the minister said.

"More than 50 Australian companies have directly shared in more than $800 million in production contracts to date, with hundreds more Australian companies indirectly benefiting through supply chain work."

The Defence Materials Technology Centre, Defence Science Technology Group and the Defence JSF Division also put out a call to defence industry earlier this year, when they announced they are seeking expressions of interest for the F-35 project.
