This Week’s Highlight: Australia and United States Defence Investment in NT

This week the Department of Defence has announced an Industry Day to discuss opportunities for industry to take part in joint Australian and United States Defence investment in the Northern Territory (NT). These investments are in support of the United States Force Posture Initiatives (USFPI) program, which will see Australia and the United States investing around $2 billion (AUD) in Defence infrastructure and facilities at existing Defence sites in the NT. These sites include RAAF Base Darwin, Robertson Barracks and RAAF Base Tindal, and training facilities at Kangaroo Flats, Bradshaw Field and Mt Bundey. Announced in November 2011, the United States Force Posture Initiatives are an extension of Australia’s existing Defence relationship with the United States and support common interest in promoting regional security and stability.

Similar to the rolling Estate Works Program, the potential projects include: airfield upgrades; accommodation upgrades (including physical fitness facilities, messes); and upgrades to training areas and ranges.

Defence will host an industry engagement forum on 22 October in Darwin. The focus of this session will be to outline the future pipeline of works anticipated in the Northern Territory, as well as give industry a practical understanding of how they can be involved. In this interactive session, participants will have an opportunity to meet representatives from the US Defense and Australian Defence departments as well as Primes/Managing Contractors. Participants will be able to raise questions and discuss opportunities across industry offerings to become part of one of the most significant infrastructure initiatives in Northern Australia.

Additional information is via Austender, or through the USFPI webpage. Registrations and submission of questions close Friday 11 October 2019 (AEST).
