Reforms to naval ship repair

The Minister for Defence Personnel, Materiel and Science, The Hon. Greg Combet, today announced reforms to Australia’s naval ship repair sector. Under the reforms,

... the Defence Materiel Organisation will reform the Navy's Major Fleet Unit Repair and Maintenance program as outlined in the Smart Sustainment initiative.

If the DMO’s conduct towards the government’s shipbuilder/sustainer ASC Pty Ltd is anything to go by, the thought of DMO teaching anyone else how to go about their business does not have me throwing my hat in the air.
