there are a number of gaps that Defence industry is being asked to fill in.
Once again, calls as to where the DIIP website is go unanswered as they have done so for the past two years.
“The IIP website is still under development and will be launched in due course,” accord- ing to a statement from a Defence spokesper- son in the week leading up to the Budget.
The Budget has provided some excellent detail in some areas but lacks in others. The ‘to do list’ of first and second pass approv- als is now absent for security reasons. It also makes it much harder to hold govern- ment to account. Getting solid longitudi- nal data is difficult as definitions change, reporting levels vary and the organisation evolves. Piecing together the details from Defence’s annual report, Budget papers, ministerial releases and other public docu- ments is still an effort.
Defence industry is in a good place as government is slowly but surely delivering on the plans they have laid out since the Turnbull government took power. | June 2018 | 39
