Defence Industrial Capabilities Assessment - Industry Survey
The Department of Defence is working in collaboration with the Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC) to undertake an assessment of Australian defence industrial capabilities. This assessment is part of a much broader initiative to produce the Defence Industry Capability Plan (DICP) which will guide Defence investment over the next ten years and identify a small number of Sovereign Industrial Capabilities for additional Australian government support.

To ensure your company's capabilities are considered in this analysis and future validation activities, we strongly encourage you to complete the

Defence is interested in all capabilities with a potential military application, across all tiers in the supply chain, including academia and research organisations. The survey is not focused solely on traditional Defence suppliers - it considers all products and services purchased by Defence and National Security clients from professional services through to infrastructure, ICT and garrison support.

The request:
  • Complete the survey. It should take approximately 20 minutes, depending on the number of Defence Relevant Industrial Capabilities (DRICs) you select.
  • Select those DRICs which best represent what you do and answer the questions to the best of your ability. If the level of specificity of a DRIC is not sufficient, or a suitable DRIC is missing, please utilise the free text line to add your own and complete the questions in relation to the capability.
  • Forward this e-mail, including the survey link, to companies within your supply chain - we need to be able to capture what they are capable of also.
  • Please also forward this CDIC request and the link to the businesses in your network who may also be a supplier to Defence, or have the capabilities to supply to Defence.
