The Role of Victorian Defence Alliances

WHAT

The Victorian Defence Alliances have been established through a partnership between the Australian Industry & Defence Network – Victoria and the State Government of Victoria. Membership of the Alliances is open to all Victorian companies seeking to supply products and services to the national and international defence industry market.

WHY

The Alliances bring focus, cohesion and unity to the actions and initiatives of companies with a shared and common purpose in specific domains of Victoria’s defence industry sector. They allow member companies to act together to deliver timely, cost effective, innovative and reliable solutions to meet Defence needs.

HOW

The Alliances support member companies through advocacy, networking, collaboration, mentoring and capability building to assist member companies to bid for work in national and international defence industry supply chains. Importantly, the Alliances provide effective arrangements for connecting Alliance members with industry primes and key Government stakeholders.
