Defence signs major maintenance contract with Transfield Services (Australia)

The Department of Defence has signed a major Land Materiel Maintenance (LMM) contract with Transfield Services (Australia). The contract is for an initial term of six years, with five one-year options.

The LMM agreement will provide equipment maintenance services to Joint Logistics Command Units across Australia.

The contract covers the maintenance of land-based vehicle fleets primarily operated by Army. The work will include inspection, scheduled servicing, repair and modification of equipment, programmed maintenance and project work, maintenance of regional loan pools, management of repair pools and support to operations.

Joint Logistics Command will lead the planning and management of LMM, supported by a contracted technical and specialist workforce.

This contract is a landmark agreement that underpins reforms in the ADF’s logistics system, a key component of Defence’s Strategic Reform Program.

Land materiel maintenance services are currently delivered under three Defence contracts which expire on 30 June 2013. This agreement consolidates those services into one national contract.

The contract is for an initial term of six years, expiring on 30 June 2019.
