Estate Works Program Forward Program of Tender Releases

Defence publishes all of its tendering opportunities, procurement and contracts on AusTender at www.tenders.gov.au. Defence do not maintain a Panel for the EWP.

By registering on AusTender tenderers have the ability to establish a user profile enabling an online automatic notification facility for users who have registered particular areas of interest in product and service categories. Registered users will then be notified via AusTender of new business opportunities and planned procurements via e-mail once business opportunities that match their specified profile are published.

In addition to registering interest on AusTender to receive notification of new business opportunities and planned procurements, the Directorate of Estate Works Program Office has made the below EWP Forward Program of Tender Releases available, to assist industry in planning for upcoming opportunities.
