Global Supply Chain Program

The Global Supply Chain (GSC) Program creates opportunities for Australian companies in the global supply chains of multinational defence companies and their major suppliers.

The participating primes establish industry units within their companies and identify bid opportunities across their defence and commercial business units. These opportunities are then provided to capable Australian companies and are won on merit. More often than not, the bid opportunities are also internationally competed, requiring the Australian business to be globally competitive.

In addition to providing bid opportunities, the GSC primes advocate on behalf of Australian industry, train and mentor companies in the primes purchasing practices and methods, and provide a range of market assistance including facilitating visits and meetings with key decision makers.  

The participating primes are:

  • BAE Systems
  • Boeing
  • Finmeccanica
  • Lockheed Martin
  • Northrop Grumman
  • Raytheon
  • Thales
