BAE Systems Australia issues update on options to support suppliers

BAE Systems Australia has announced its local supply chain will continue defense work to help protect the country and support its economy, the company said.

The local supply chain is critical for the continuation of Defence work that will help to protect the nation and support the economy. BAE Systems Australia is focused on ensuring support of suppliers through this challenging time.

Every year, BAE Systems Australia spends over USD 330 million across some 1,500 local suppliers in Australia.

Current priorities include:
-Establishing ways to ensure suppliers are paid as early as possible
-Working with suppliers on supply chain risks, as travel between states and territories continues to become more challenging
-Looking at ways to send out planned procurement orders as soon as possible; and to bring future orders forward wherever possible.
