BAE Systems Australia has an established local supply chain that reaches across the nation. With over 1,600 Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) on our Approved Supplier List (ASL), we recognise the enduring benefits of fostering and supporting the SMEs on our ASL, alongside the development of new entrants to the Defence sector. In 2020 we committed over AUD770M worth of work with Australian suppliers, representing over 76% of our total spend throughout the year. We will continue to provide opportunities for Australian business to become part of our programs.

Opportunities


Global Access Program

In response to the Australian Government's Global Supply Chain initiative, BAE Systems Australia established the Global Access Program (GAP) in 2012. Through their team embedded across their international business units, GAP creates export opportunities for Australian companies within the supply chain of BAE Systems group and partner organisations.

In addition to identifying opportunities and providing introductions, BAE Systems' GAP team also offers companies mentoring and assistance through their supplier training programs.

To learn more about the Global Access Program, visit their website HERE.
To learn more about the Global Supply Chain Program visit the website HERE.

The Global Access Program is built upon supply and demand principles and focusses on providing export opportunities. BAE Systems' team engages with program managers and procurement professionals across their global business to identify sources of demand which an Australian company may be able to service. They also engage widely with Australian industry to ensure they have a detailed knowledge of local capability and export ambitions.


Specific opportunities will be related to the Global Access Program in the Work Package section of this page.


Indirect Procurement Opportunities

The indirect procurement function at BAE Systems Australia are responsible for acquiring products and services to support the business operations. The indirect supplies include IT equipment right through to contingent labour, etc. Indirect supplies are in their own way essential to the organisation, but they don't exert any direct input into the finished products and services you deliver to your customers. Rather, they play a supporting role to ensure that the process of turning direct supplies into finished goods goes smoothly.


Current opportunities are listed in the Work Packages section.

Cyber Security Support

A new cyber security tool has been developed to help small businesses gain access to work in Australia's defence industry.

BAE Systems Australia, Saab Australia, industry partners and government have developed the Cyber Framework for the Defence Industry (CFDI) to measure and increase the cyber resilience of SMEs wanting to work on Defence programs.

The CFDI was developed to simplify and help address the growing cyber risk facing SMEs as many don't have the same level of cyber resources and protections as the larger defence contractors.

The CFDI provides a standardised approach to cyber maturity assessment and can also be used to guide users to next steps to increase their levels of cyber protection. The tool aims to support companies so they can self-manage their cyber security requirements and risks.

More information in the media release HERE.


SMEs can download a sample of the cyber assessment tool in the Cyber Security document section at the bottom of the project page.

BAE Systems encourages companies to utilise this tool to familiarise themselves with the process and the questionnaire.
It can help you understand your levels of cyber security maturity.

Follow on engagement with the tool will occur if you are invited to a supplier on-boarding/qualification activity.

You do not need to submit a completed tool to BAE Systems Australia unless invited to.
