Industry working with Defence
Industry has a key role in helping Defence to purchase and maintain a modern, well-equipped and capable Defence Force. Equipment provided by industry has to be up-to-date, proven, reliable and meets health and safety regulations.
Defence has established the Defence Industry Engagement team to help with the challenges industry can face in dealing with an extensive range of stakeholders, end-users, decision-makers, procurement teams and capability planners. The team includes full-time engagement specialists within the Ministry of Defence and the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF). Engagement with our team ranges from current supplier relationship management through to early engagement on future plans and projects. The team provides efficient access for Defence and industry to exchange information, experience and knowledge throughout the entire capability lifecycle. We welcome any feedback that you may have about how we could work more closely with industry.
