Local industries involvement policies
The Acquisition Division is responsible for the implementation of Government procurement policy on local industry involvement in Defence contracts and encourages overseas bidders to look for the involvement of local (New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Chile and Brunei) companies on a sound commercial basis and to the benefit of the Division's customer.
Australia/New Zealand defence suppliers
The Australian Department of Defence maintains a database of companies that are interested in supplying goods and services to Defence, or may wish to participate as subcontractors to Defence contracts.
The New Zealand Defence Industry Advisory Council (NZDIAC)

The Minister of Defence Award of Excellence to Industry
The Minister of Defence Award of Excellence to Industry was established in 1998 by the New Zealand Defence Industry Advisory Council (NZDIAC) to highlight and reward the contribution made by industry to Defence. The award is an engraved trophy, which past winners have been able to use to good effect in their own marketing efforts. The award winners are announced in October each year.
