The Australian Defence Force (ADF) is tasked with planning, preparing and conducting operations for the protection and promotion of Australia’s security and national interests.
ADF operations serve three areas:
- Defence of sovereign territory
- Protection of overseas trade and offshore resources
- Executing contingency operations in support of multinational operations or the UN.
Managing deployed units to meet these tasks demands precision, efficiency and value for money, especially when set against the Strategic Reform Program Delivering Force 2030, designed to produce an efficient and accountable defence organisation within the government agreed funding envelope while achieving savings of A$20 billion over 10 years.
