Doing Business with the US
Australian suppliers have the opportunity to compete for US procurements in the Northern Territory. It is important that Australian contractors competing for US-led projects familiarise themselves with US contract requirements as they contain key differences to Australian contracts.
Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) is the US authority responsible for the delivery of US infrastructure projects under the Initiatives.
They have established a dedicated project office in Darwin to oversee and manage infrastructure projects under Initiatives.
