The vision for Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG) is to be the premier program management, logistics, procurement and engineering services group in Defence.
To deliver this vision, CASG has a number of key goals which include improving industry relationships and industry performance. This means it encourages open and honest dialogue and rewards good performance. CASG is committed to effectively delivering capability and through-life sustainment on time, on budget and to the required capability, while meeting quality and safety standards. CASG aims to be business-like, accountable and an outcome driven organisation with a strong and close relationship with the government and industry.
Defence involved in hundreds of major projects such as the Future Submarine, Joint Strike Fighter aircraft and the Air Warfare Destroyers. The portfolio of projects undertaken dwarfs most other national developments in scale, cost and complexity. CASG realises our success is dependent on industry understanding our business and having a commitment to work with us as partners to deliver the required capability to the Australian Defence Force (ADF).
In the decade to 2020, the Australian Government is set to invest more than $150 billion in defence capability. Around eighty per cent of all of Australia’s warfighting assets are set to be replaced or upgraded, and this creates major opportunities or the local defence industry. This will build jobs and grow the economy while creating a smarter, stronger and more efficient ADF.
Because of this there has never been a better time to do business with Defence. But understanding our strategies for acquisition and sustainment is critical to your success in making defence capability your investment.
