Procurement, Tendering and Grant Development

Defence sector procurement programs, models, processes, arrangements and commercial documentation are highly complex and detailed, whether these are directly undertaken by the Commonwealth, or via various tiers of the Defence Industry supply chain.

This complexity is due to the criticality of the capability being acquired, the sensitivities associated with security and supply chain provenance/resilience, and the nature of the need for Defence to achieve value for money and accountability for the effective use of public monies.


The DIAS Team has extensive experience in Defence procurement and commercial services, with experience obtained across both Government and Industry roles and across both the procurement and the bidding perspectives.  This experience also spans the full procurement and capability lifecycle – from initial acquisition strategy development, to market engagements, tender processes, contract negotiations, contract and project delivery, sustainment and disposal.

DIAS has a proven methodology to assists clients to prepare for, and respond to, complex procurement and tendering opportunities and Grant applications.
