Background: ODIS project

We were contracted by the Office of Defence Industry Support (ODIS) to build an online tool to help small to medium enterprises (SMEs) understand what it means to be “defence ready” and assess their business against best practices benchmarked for defence suppliers.

V2.0 of the ODIS DBRT is now available at dbrt.online. The new ODIS DBRT is a critical step in an SME’s journey to potentially becoming a supplier to Defence. It is designed to align with ODIS’ business processes to help them engage with eligible businesses and manage their workflow more effectively. This will help ODIS maximise the Australian Government resources available to assist Australian small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to become “defence ready”.

Completing a DBRT assessment takes approximately one hour. Once finished, businesses can view a report and create an account to save, review, add commentary and update results. They can also seek assistance from an approved DBRT mentor organisation.

By assessing businesses against best practices, the DBRT gives SMEs the insight to prioritise the actions necessary to enter the defence industry and grow their capabilities. It also lets prime contractors assess a business’s defence readiness against their own assessment systems.

The DBRT is hosted in a sovereign secure cloud environment and meets the security requirements set out in the Australian Government Information Security Manual. We continue to manage and update it for the ODIS.
