Business cases and cost modelling experience
Dougal generated the business case, cost model, and cabinet submission that delivered over 30,000 weapon systems to the Australian Defence Force as a project manager within Defence.
As a consultant Dougal has advised Transport for NSW on six infrastructure projects.
Dougal reviewed project plans and feasibility assessments for compliance against state government requirements, and wrote successful business cases for each project.
Dougal Pidgeon is a project manager and procurement specialist with extensive experience gained working in the Department of Defence, state government and the defence industry.
Dougal has worked with clients to deliver and advise on projects at every stage of the capability lifecycle.
He has been involved in developing requirements and approaching the market, establishing and managing contracts for the delivery, support, and ultimately disposal of systems.
These projects and procurements also represent a wide variety in scope, value and approach and have included:
- A multi-billion dollar program to replace whole fleets of weapons
- Projects that were designing and developing new systems or modifying off-the-shelf products
- Rapid acquisitions for urgent operational requirements.
Dougal ensures his clients deliver projects and procurements through detailed and effective planning, establishing robust processes, maintaining clear communication, and strong but inclusive leadership.
Dougal has Masters degrees in Engineering Science (Project Management) and Defence Capability Development and Acquisition.
Dougal also has qualifications in procurement and tendering.
Dougal enjoys walking his dog around the green hills of the Yarra Ranges, and escaping from the notoriously variable weather there to dry out in front of a fire with a glass of red and a fine book.
