Maintenance contractors

At Defence Housing Australia (DHA), we provide quality housing and related services to Defence members and families. In doing this, we support the operational, recruitment and retention goals of the Department of Defence.

To meet our Defence housing obligations, DHA manages three Residential Maintenance Services (RMS) panels, which provides routine maintenance and emergency repair services to the DHA housing portfolio across 36 trades.

We appoint contractors to our panel via Austender through our rolling tender program. We recommend prospective contractors to register on Austender and to set up notifications in order not to miss our next tender release.
