Australia and the United States (US) are funding and delivering several infrastructure projects to support the United States Force Posture Initiatives (USFPI).

Industry events are held to provide information to businesses interested in working to deliver USFPI construction projects in Australia. The US have also established a dedicated project office in Darwin to oversee and manage USFPI infrastructure projects.

Australian contractors competing for USFPI projects should familiarise themselves with both Australian and US contract opportunities and requirements, and the differences therein:
