Nova Systems Listed in ADM Top 40 Defence Contractors
Jan 9, 2019
Nova Systems has again ranked in the Australian Defence Magazine Top 40 Defence Contractors Survey for 2018.
Recording a steady increase year on year, Nova Systems placed in at #29 recording strong growth, up $13.4m from 2017.
The survey is a valuable and sought after guide to the economic activity generated by the defence industry in Australia.
2018 also saw the introduction of the Major Service Provider Model to the Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group within Australian Defence. Team Nova comprised of Nova Systems, QinetiQ and PwC were selected as one of four MSP’s. Also selected was KEY Team, Jacobs Beca Team and Team Downer. Mr Steven Robinson, Chief Executive Nova Systems Australia commented on the arrangement.
“The Major Service Provider (MSP) arrangements are transforming the way Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG) engages with industry to support the branches, projects, systems program offices and centres of expertise. We’re very pleased to be on this shared journey together with CASG and the other three MSPs.
Once fully implemented, MSP will deliver shared benefits and value to CASG, the MSPs and the wider industry supply chain, particularly small to medium enterprises and small businesses on the Defence Support Services Panel.
The long term focus on value for money, strategic programs of work and less transactional supplier relationships will help CASG deliver the Integrated Investment Plan. Major business changes like this do take time to roll out across such a large organisation as CASG, but we are confident that industry and Defence will see growing benefits now and as we move into 2019.”
