Defence Procurement Policy
Defence has a single overarching procurement policy framework managed by CASG. Mandatory procurement guidance is contained in the Defence Procurement Policy Manual. Within CASG, this is supplemented by best-practice process guidance contained in a Complex Procurement Guide and Simple Procurement Process Tool.
The DPPM is the principal reference document for Defence officials conducting procurement. It provides procurement officers, and others involved in the procurement process, with the Departmental policy necessary to comply with Commonwealth policy.
Intellectual Property (IP) is a major contributor to Australia’s national defence capability. In order to protect our national interests, Defence and Australian industry need access to some of the world’s most advanced technologies and creative developments.
The Procurement Complaints Handling Process provides information about the procedures for making a complaint that arise during the procurement process.
