A joint Defence-Industry initiative

How to participate in the RPDE Program

The RPDE Program is an inclusive program with participation based only on the ability of applicants to meet the membership criteria. It is not competitive and there is no associated cost or fee.

Applications to participate in the RPDE Program are assessed by a Membership Committee drawn from the RPDE Board. The Committee recommendation is then directed to the Board for ratification. Once the Board has accepted a membership recommendation the applicant will be advised in writing and the Relationship Agreement and Standing Offer will become binding to both parties.

Application to join the RPDE Program

The Application Pack is available in the ‘Publications’ area of this website and consists of the following documents:

· RPDE Application to Participate,

· RPDE 2016 Relationship Agreement,

· RPDE Standing Offer, and

· RPDE Policy documents.

The Relationship Agreement defines the obligations between the parties. The Standing Offer provides the mechanism for the Commonwealth to acquire services from members. The policy documents define the operational processes of the program.

It is important the evidence provided in the Application to Participate clearly demonstrates how the skills and expertise of the applicant’s people and organisation will contribute to the RPDE program. When assessing applications, RPDE will look for clear and definitive examples or evidence and may discount vague or sweeping statements. Applicants are required to submit the completed Application Pack by email to commercial@rpde.org.au. Please ensure you retain a copy of the signed Relationship Agreement and Standing Offer for your records.

RPDE will confirm receipt of your Application Pack. The Commonwealth will only use the information obtained from applications to determine the eligibility of applicants to join the RPDE Program. Please direct all queries to commercial@rpde.org.au.
