Of all the Commonwealth Requests for Tender issued each week, Defence Estate always sees the most activity. Under Defence’s rolling Estate upgrade program, packages of work are released each week to rebuild, refurbish and renovate Defence infrastructure across the country. However while the opportunities are plenty, Defence Estate Works require knowledge of Defence policies, standards and contracting templates to be successful. To that end, Defence is running a series of Defence Estate Policy Training Webinars to provide information about policies which impact the running of the Defence Estate. These are open webinars available to both Defence staff and industry partners to attend and learn about estate policies. Each webinar will be run by different policy holders and have a different topic presented. A range of subjects will be covered which relate to different estate activities and phases of the estate lifecycle. The webinars will be recorded and made available for viewing both on and off the Defence Protected Network.
These webinars will be held every Thursday at 12pm starting on the 24th of September with the topic of Smart Infrastructure. The current schedule shows until 10th December but more webinars will be scheduled in due course. Please note the webinars will run over Zoom and attendees will need to register and attend on a non-Defence device. These webinars are purely for increasing the understanding of Defence policies and do not impact any future procurement activity. Additionally they will not offer an opportunity to ask questions on any existing or future procurement. For further information and registration details click here .
