About the New Zealand Defence Industry Association
Formed in 1993 on the back of the ANZAC Frigate Project, the NZ DIA is New Zealand industry’s principle conduit to the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF). The primary focus of NZ DIA remains enabling Members to be informed about, understand and support the Crown’s Defence procurement programme.
The NZ DIA works to deliver mutually beneficial process improvement, lower business cost and improved commercial outcomes for Defence, associated agencies (e.g. security, intelligence, border control, police, customs) and NZDIA members by achieving recognition as the Defence Industry Stakeholder Representative of Choice for reference, consultation and engagement across industry, sector and procurement initiatives.
