Massive government procurement of services signed

New service contracts will help support Australian defence operations."

The largest government procurement of services in the defence department has recently been finalised, with five more contracts for support services signed.

Australian defence bases will benefit from the service procurement, which is the biggest of its type ever undertaken by the Commonwealth.

This signing has brought the Base Services Re-tender to an end, which began in 2012. Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Defence the Hon Darren Chester said that a suit of 10 base services contracts had now been finalised.

These contracts have an initial term of six years, with the possibility of four years of extensions. It's expected that the contracts will total around $10 billion during the 10-year period.

"We now have contracts to cover the full range of key services for Defence bases - everything from routine maintenance and security to pest control, waste management, transport, and support to range and training areas," Mr Chester said.

Deputy Secretary Defence Support and Reform Steven Grzeskowiak explained that as the contractors moved into the operational phase of contracts, Australian defence bases around the country would begin to experience consistent service delivery.

"It is rare to get the opportunity to implement such a wide-ranging suite of contracts all at the same time. We have used this to drive improvements to service delivery while at the same time achieving savings and efficiencies," he said.

The defence industry continues to grow, with new vehicle acquisitions on the way over the course of the next few years.
