Benefits Seen with More Disclosure of Defense Plans

This review was prepared under contract to the Department of Defence. The authors were Mark Thomson and Leigh Purnell.

In essence, the review was asked a simple question: how much should the government disclose about its plans for equipping Australia's defence force?

The answer, set out in the report, is that there are tangible benefits to increasing the current level of disclosure, and that the risks in doing so are manageable.

Relevant supporting documents can be found here.
