The ADM/Department of Defence Essington Lewis Awards are designed to recognise excellence in the degree to which industry and the Department of Defence have worked together in a spirit of collaboration to overcome challenges or problems – ensuring that the ADF has or will have the materiel it needs, when it needs it, and at a cost that represents value for money.
The perpetual trophy is named in honour of Essington Lewis, the industrialist and director of munitions during WWII. Trophies and certificates will be awarded at the Defence + Industry Gala Awards in Canberra on Wednesday 1 August 2018.
In an effort to streamline the awards, all interested parties are asked to complete an expression of interest document and submit by December 13, 2017. For more information please check the ADM website here.
