Using Brooke’s collaborative enterprise approach, we were able to deliver a stronger supply chain, increased knowledge transfer from industry, a 50% reduction in the project schedule, 30% reduction in procurement costs for both the government and industry and a 40% reduction in overheads that equates to approximately $125 million over the life of the 15 year contract.
This project won the 2019 Essington Lewis Award and noted the following in the Australian Defence Magazine:
“The work done by the Amphibious Combat and Sealift SPO (ACSSPO) and SME Brooke Global saw the team develop an integrated supplier engagement model (SEM) to look after every aspect of the Canberra class LHDs,” according to the judges. “The former support arrangements were highly transactional in nature with the new model aiming for true partnership between Defence and Industry. ACSPO worked hand in hand with Brooke Global to deliver a reformed framework that delivered significant savings to the Commonwealth.”
