Each year Australian Defence Magazine (ADM) hosts the ADM Defence/Industry Congress. In 2015 this event will be held at the Hyatt Hotel, Canberra on Tuesday, 10 February 2015.
The DMO/Industry Team of the Year Awards for Excellence 2014 will be presented at an Awards reception to be held at the conclusion of the conference. Teams entered in the Awards will be able to attend the Reception separately from the Conference.
The Awards are designed to recognise acquisition and sustainment teams who have shown high levels of capability, cooperation and project management prowess.
The DMO/Industry awards are structured into five categories from which a Major Company/DMO team and a Small to Medium Enterprise (SME)/DMO team are chosen to receive the perpetual Essington Lewis trophies, one for the Major Company/DMO team and one for the SME/DMO team.
The five award categories are:
Eligible activities for all categories include any project that is completed, or any significant project milestone achieved, that contributed to the DMO's ability to effectively equip and sustain the ADF during the 2014 calendar year.
The only exception is an FMS acquisition. An FMS acquisition is not an eligible activity, however the installation or integration of equipment acquired through an FMS case is an eligible activity.
If in any doubt about the eligibility of your activity, please contact the Awards Convenor.
You may wish to discuss an award nomination with your respective DMO project / sustainment team before entering. Information on how to enter can be downloaded here, including:
