Supply Chain

ASC is committed to building and maintaining the most advanced naval combatants in the nation. This commitment has seen us establish working relationships with a significant number of suppliers, capability partners, universities and specialist providers.

Our acquisition process is accomplished through the use of reliable suppliers capable of providing supplies and services of the highest quality in accordance with the required specifications, contractual terms and delivery schedules - at a total cost that provides value for money.

We develop, negotiate and administer contracts for supplies and services whilst complying with applicable laws, regulations and statutes.
