The federal government has announced a $430,000 program delivered by the Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC) and HunterNet, aimed at helping local companies better compete for contracts.
The program would run over the next 14 months, be delivered for free, and assist companies both new to defence work and those wanting to bid more effectively for it, said defence industry minister Melissa Price in a statement.
“Regional businesses like those in the Hunter provide crucial support to Defence,” Price said.
The program would, she added, “provide free online workshops to Hunter region businesses to help them understand what it takes to work with Defence, and how to navigate the defence industry landscape.”
The workshops will cover topics such as tendering, cyber security requirements, export controls and business continuity.
