A Projects of Concern Summit was held today on the Civil Military Air Traffic Management System (OneSKY-CMATS).

The summit discussed the integrated master schedule, completion of a test readiness review and commencement of software testing. All parties agreed to continue executing the agreed remediation plan through a set of regular milestones.

This is the sixth Projects of Concern Summit held under the Albanese Government. It demonstrates the Albanese Government’s commitment to regular ministerial summits to remediate challenging projects.

Quotes attributable to Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon Pat Conroy MP: 

“Since coming to office the Albanese Government has significantly increased the frequency of Projects of Concern Summits, underscoring our commitment to ensuring critical and complex projects get back on track.

“The ministerial engagement through these summits has brought the Government, industry and Defence representatives together to inject more leadership and oversight into project delivery.

“Over the past 12 months, considerable effort has been undertaken by the OneSKY-CMATS project team to develop a robust plan to remediate areas of concern. The Government remains confident this project will deliver a viable capability to Defence.”
