Do you have a current defence contract? Are you planning on tendering for a defence contract within the next 12 months? Do you have staff working on defence capabilities that require upskilling in a trade, technical or professional skill set? If the answer is “Yes” to these questions then the Skilling Australia’s Defence Industry (SADI) Program might be of interest to you.
SADI is a reimbursement grant program that has over $13 million to allocate to eligible defence industry companies to assist with their training needs for the 2012/13 financial year.
In response to an independently conducted review, SADI is undergoing some major changes in order to better serve defence industry's needs.
New funding models are currently being considered alongside the individual funding round offered in previous years.
The next round of funding is expected to be announced by the Minister for Defence Materiel in March or April 2012.
When the funding round is announced by the Minister for Defence Materiel, applicants are encouraged to visit the SADI website to gain information on how to apply and to download the supplementary program information.
