Abstract:

The projects outlined in this public version of the Defence Capability Plan DCP reflect the strategic requirements outlined in the 2009 Defence White Paper, Defending Australia in the Asia Pacific Century Force 2030 the White Paper and the emphasis of this Government on the development of Force 2030. In publishing this DCP, the Government provides advice to the Australian public, industry and defence commentators on the scope and scale of the future defence equipment capital program. The Defence Capability Plan Public Version 2009 DCP provides an account of major capital equipment proposals that are currently planned for Government consideration either first or second pass approval in the period 2009-2013 the Forward Estimates period. A number of substantial programs identified in the 2009 Defence White Paper, Defending Australia in the Asia Pacific Century Force 2030 the White Paper are not included in this DCP as they will be presented for Government consideration beyond the Forward Estimates period. They are expected to be included in subsequent DCPs. Details relating to a small number of classified and sensitive proposals have been withheld. These proposals represent less than three percent of the total value of projects. In order to inform industry about the changes to projects, Defence will update the internet published version of the DCP at regular intervals. The changes made will reflect Government decisions on project budgets, scope and timing. The internet version of the Public DCP is available on the Defence Materiel Organisation DMO and on the Capability Development Group CDG website.
