At BAE Systems Australia, how we engage and operate with our suppliers is critical to our success.
With a focus on collaborating to deliver on our commitments, we work closely with international and Australian suppliers to provide crucial capability to our customers across a wide range of advanced defence, aerospace and security solutions. 
We classify all suppliers according to scope of supply and apply rigorous standards of compliance to each supplier based on risk. 
Our procurement teams work with our suppliers to ensure they meet our expected principles and behaviours, as well as assist with ongoing supplier management.

Global Access Program

In response to the Australian Government’s Global Supply Chain initiative, BAE Systems established the Global Access Program (GAP) in 2012.
Through our team embedded across our international business units, GAP creates export opportunities for Australian companies to access the supply chain of BAE Systems group and partner organisations.
In addition to identifying opportunities and providing introductions, our GAP team also offers companies mentoring and assistance with qualification and proposal writing.
