Project Details


BAE Systems Australia work across all domains of defence and security, using new ideas and know-how to ensure that their customers always have the capability they need. Their work helps keep Australia safe and contributes to creating a more prosperous and innovative nation.


BAE Systems employ 4,500 people across the country, generate $1.2 billion in revenue each year and their exports help to fuel the local economy. They do this by harnessing Australian innovation through a vibrant national supply chain and generating careers that make a difference today and for future generations.


BAE Systems seek to maximise Australian industry involvement in projects and procure around $300 million worth of work from around 1,500 Australian suppliers. Suppliers are also supported through their Global Access Program to identify and develop world-class industry capabilities.


BAE Systems encourage you to contact them if you believe your company can add value to their supply chain.


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.

Opportunities

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.

This project page is designed to provide a conduit for Australian SMEs to submit their interest in participating within the program by highlighting their unique capabilities, credibility and export ambitions.

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

  • Sovereign Electronic Warfare Solutions:

BAE Systems' diverse business includes a portfolio of acquisition and sustainment programs in the Electronic Warfare (EW) domain, with a heritage dating back to the 1980s. BAE Systems would like to improve the level and quality of engagement with companies in the Australian supply chain that can work with them as they continue to develop indigenous EW solutions that foster a sovereign EW community. To that end, BAE Systems is seeking information from local companies who are well placed to contribute to the business of designing, manufacturing, delivering and supporting these important sovereign capabilities. A specific work package has been created to provide your company with an opportunity to raise awareness of EW-related capabilities across the product lifecycle.
