Case Study: Program & Project Management

Project Overview

K39 Consulting assumed responsibility for the development and delivery of a 10 year (Plus), $900mil, strategic contract on behalf of Explosive Materiel Branch. This short notice secondment was a result of the client recognizing critical schedule risks associated with Request For Tender (RFT) development and release. K39 Consulting assumed full accountability for the design and delivery, within a vastly condensed (4 months) timeframe, of a full AUSDEFCON Statement of Work (SoW) suite (with correctly mapped linkages to the Conditions of Contract) and the design of a bespoke Performance Management Framework (PMF).

What our Clients are saying

K39 Consulting were engaged to develop and deliver a $900 million strategic contract on behalf of Explosive Material Branch. This required delivery within a significantly truncated time period due to critical schedule risks. Despite this, the K39 consultants, led by Darren Owen, formulated a solution that surpassed our expectations with the delivery of greater value for money, enhanced proficiency in the use of the Commonwealth facilities and an increase in Defence manufacturing capability and capacity. They definitely earn their reputation as Defence procurement experts.” Name, Department
