Defence’s annual report has hit the streets, DSTO has released their new guiding document and the furore over Defence pay and conditions continues, leaving a bad taste in the mouths of many. It would be good to see some coherent reasoning behind the effective pay cut to Defence personnel but I fear I might suffocate if I hold my breath waiting.
If you're headed to the SIA conference next week in Fremantle, be sure to catch up with Julian Kerr who will be on deck for ADM.

I'll be at MilCIS along with David Jones to make sure we have all our bases covered. Stop by the stand to say hi.
To help us make the ADM products better, we've put together a short survey to get your thoughts on our various offerings. Click here to take part in this quick anonymous survey to have your say.
Hope to see you round the traps.
