“The concept of the CDIC being one front door for defence industry to come to, to provide that range of services, is really striking a cord.” Andrew Garth, general manager of the Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC), joins the Defence Connect Podcast to discuss the progress the organisation has made since its launch nearly a year ago. A key initiative of the Defence Industry Policy Statement, the CDIC has aimed to ‘open the door to Defence’ for Australian industry and truly recognise industry as a fundamental input to capability. Garth takes us through the changes the industry has undertaken over the last decade, from when it was “a tough sell” to where it is today, the relationships with primes and SMEs, as well as the challenges the organisation will face in reaching the full operational capability of the CDIC.
