Australian Defence Force Academy billion dollar rebuild

Parliament of Australia < 1 mins read

Under the Public Works Committee Act 1969, the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Works will consider two new referrals from the Department of Defence.

The projects are:

Department of Defence – RAAF Base Learmonth Redevelopment Enabling KC-30A Operations – $662.2 million – Exmouth, Western Australia

  • The works will deliver upgrades to the airfield at RAAF Base Learmonth to meet Defence requirements for the support of KC-30A operations and to improve overall airfield resilience.

Department of Defence – Canberra Defence Precinct Tranche 1 Australian Defence Force Academy Living-in Accommodation Project – $1.25 billion – Canberra, ACT

  • The works will replace existing Living-in Accommodation facilities and associated infrastructure at ADFA with contemporary, safe and suitable accommodation that will support recruitment, retention, and wellbeing of Trainee Officers.

It is anticipated that the Committee will conduct public and in-camera hearings for the inquiries in 2024. The Committee would like to hear from all individuals or organisations interested in the project. The deadline for public submissions is 29 January 2024, with more information available on the Public Works Committee website.

Mr Graham Perrett MP, Committee Chair, said, ‘public submissions and the public hearings will allow the Committee to review the purpose, need and public value of the proposed works.’

Please note: the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Works is not involved in the tendering process, awarding of contracts or details of the proposed works. Inquiries on these matters should be addressed to the relevant Commonwealth entities.
