How do SMEs benefit from joining Team Downer?
Australian Small-to-Medium Enterprises (SMEs) enjoy significant benefits when they register with Team Downer and gain access to contract opportunities with the Department of Defence’s Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group.
The Australian defence industry market is crowded and competitive, and it can be difficult for smaller businesses to contend with the primes and other large international defence companies to secure contracts and become part of the Defence supply chain.
Registering with an established Major Service Provider like Team Downer creates a pathway to those opportunities, and allows SMEs to leverage Team Downer’s expertise, access and reputation for capable service delivery into contract positions for their own employees.
High-performing SMEs that establish a record of successful delivery with Team Downer may also be eligible for selection as a preferred supplier, gaining access to additional services and obtaining longer-term visibility of workforce requirements.
