As a 21st Century Prime, Babcock Australasia has a unique Prime Vendor model that delivers Sovereign Industry Capability and focuses on the needs of the customer and the end-user.
Through our Prime Vendor model, Babcock delivers an innovative approach to strategic procurement and manages through life support for more than 20,000 assets for our Australian customers across Defence, Aviation & Critical Services.
Babcock Australasia’s Head of Business Development, Mick Burgess, said the model is built on centralised systems, processes and tools that can be scaled and adapted easily for different customer needs.
“Babcock’s Prime Vendor model combines acquisition processes aligned with current Commonwealth procurement guidelines, with engineering insights and data analytics to support strategic procurement decisions,” Mr Burgess said.
“Through this approach, we are able to deliver evidenced-based decisions, real value for money and reduced total cost of ownership of critical equipment for our customers.”
Babcock’s commitment to delivering Sovereign Industry Capability is embedded within current and future business thinking.
“Babcock enables Sovereign Industry Capability through vision, leadership and inclusion,” Mr Burgess said.
“Our approach provides protection and assurance for Australian suppliers and vendors and is leading the charge for other Defence Primes.
“We maximise value for money for our Defence Customers and lead development of Australian Sovereign Industry Capability by implementing innovative procurement strategies and protecting the Intellectual Property of our suppliers.”
Babcock will provide an open briefing and engagement event for suppliers throughout Australia at Land Forces on Wednesday 2 June 2021.
