Procurement Policy

Defence is governed by the structured processes, policies, guidelines and templates for procuring goods and services. Building a better working relationship between Defence and suppliers is at the heart of changes to processes, policies, guidelines and templates aimed at making selling to Defence easier.

To support the application of procurement related legislation and policy, Defence has a single overarching procurement framework included are:

  • ASDEFCON Technical Data/Intellectual Property Framework

    The ASDEFCON Technical Data / Intellectual Property (TD/IP) framework is a key Defence reform initiative to improve and streamline Defence's procurement processes. The framework achieves a more appropriate balance between the TD/IP needs of Defence and the protection of industry's interests, as well as reflecting the fundamental importance of TD as a key enabler of capability outcomes.

  • Defence Procurement Complaints Scheme

    Defence has a fair, equitable and non-discriminatory procurement complaints handling procedure and manages all procurement complaints under the Defence Procurement Complaints Management Scheme.
