Strategic partnerships

Strategic partnerships

Army partners with other organisations and our communities to share information, explore new ideas, be more creative and learn from others. Army enhances its reputation and increases capability by being open, transparent and willing to learn.

Strategic partnerships, led by Army on behalf of the Department of Defence, are generally between Army and a similar sized national institution or organisation.

Local partnerships are characterised by proximity, mutual benefit and community spirit between Army units and their local community.
