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.

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.

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:

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.
