Call for EOIs! - the annual Essington Lewis Awards hosted by ADM and the Department of Defence are designed to recognise excellence in the degree to which industry and the Department have worked together in a spirit of collaboration to overcome challenges or problems – ensuring that the ADF has or will have the materiel it needs, when it needs it, and at a cost that represents value for money. Submit your expressions of interest by December 13th 2017. Note this year, entries are invited for work undertaken with E&IG, CIOG and DST Group as well as with CASG teams.
