Event Date: August 5, 2019

The New Zealand Government’s Defence Capability Plan 2019 (DCP) was eagerly awaited and has not disappointed. With over 30 Defence led capability based investments planned between now and 2035, the DCP provides substantial opportunities for industry. In addition, NZDF is ramping up to launch a large number of smaller projects covering the full ambit of requirements from smaller NZDF led new or replacement capabilities, to Defence Estate projects and through to information and technology.
 
NZDIA is delighted to be delivering in collaboration with MOD and NZDF, a day of information and discussion between MOD/NZDF and industry.
 
The agenda and running order will be announced shortly but expect presentations from MOD and Capability Branch on all the key Defence led and NZDF led projects kicking off in 2019/2020. There will also be updates around sustainment and infrastructure investment, to support the DCP.
 
We are also delighted that there will be opportunities for Project breakout discussions, between industry players and MOD/NZDF Project leads. As registrations come in, we will work out the best way to facilitate the sessions of greatest demand.
 
We will be talking to a range of Primes this week about opportunities in their supply chains for these projects. Further information will follow.
