ADROITA is proud to announce the Hon. Stuart Ayers, MP, Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney, launches CEO, Sarah Pavillard’s white paper ‘Partnering for Success’ at Land Forces Defence Expo on 1st June 2021.
In this white paper Sarah shares strategies for how engineering, manufacturing and technology firms can break down the barriers to entry and enable Defence and SMEs to partner to achieve a common goal.
“I am delighted launch my latest white paper ‘Partnering for Success’ at Land Forces 2021 with the support of the NSW Government and Investment NSW,” says Sarah Pavillard.
“The increase in Defence spending and the Federal government’s commitment to making the Australian Defence industry base more resilient and self-reliant to better support Defence is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for Aussie SMEs to not only futureproof themselves but contribute to Australia’s national interests.
“No-one can do it alone. Partnering is key and that is what this white paper is all about,” said Sarah.
Sarah goes on to explain the strategies in this white paper are not just theories but have been tried and tested.
“These strategies that my team and I have put in place for Australian SMEs are delivering results today, as clients can access to tens of millions of dollars of new revenue, all while unlocking new industry capability to support Defence in the future,” says Sarah.
In 2020, the Australian Government put $270 billion in acquisition budget, approximately $180B in sustainment budget, and $575 billion in total over 10 years, on the table for Defence to invest.
It also strengthened its commitment to spending with Australian industry, with the Defence spending forecast to flow to Australian businesses increasing three- to six-fold over the next 10 years.
That’s a total of up to $11.5B per annum for Australian industry, including SMEs, to grow their business.
Historically, the challenge for Australian businesses accessing the Defence sector is that it is a closed shop, extremely complex, and takes too long.
Sarah Pavillard and the team at ADROITA opens those doors, simplifying Defence, and fast tracking new, profitable revenue to futureproof Australian businesses and to build the industrial capability the Australian Defence Force needs to secure Australia’s sovereign interests.
