Procurement and Tendering experience

Dougal was the Commercial Manager for a $2 billion program seeking to replace around 26 separate weapon systems for the Australian Defence Force.

Dougal developed and implemented a new commercial model, supported by a staged contract built on collaborative contracting principles, to enable the program to meet a compressed schedule while operating with reduced resources.

The contract employed performance-based contracting metrics throughout each stage, supported by a layered governance framework, to incentivise the contractor to act in the best interests of the Department of Defence.
