Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI) Funding Agreement

Defence today finalised an agreement with the Australian Strategic Policy Institute

(ASPI) to secure its funding over the long term. 

Under the agreement, Defence will provide ASPI with a grant of $3.3 million

per year, indexed annually at the same rate applied to the Defence budget for the

period 1 July 2010 to 30 June 2014, with an option to extend for up to four years.

ASPI was established in 2001, and is an independent policy institute focused on

Australia’s defence and strategic policy.  It exists to provide alternative sources of

input to Government decision-making processes on major strategic and defence policy

issues; foster public debate and understanding of strategic and defence issues; and

contribute to the development of professional strategic policy expertise in Australia.
