PRICES at ADF clothing stores will be
standardised across the three services
when a new costing policy is intro-
duced on November 1.
The Director of the Clothing Systems
Project Office, Col Haydn Kohl, said
under the new policy, prices for similar
clothing items across the ADF would be
the same regardless of service, gender or
"However, in some cases where there
is a clear difference between the gar-
ments, such as heavyweight and light-
weight trousers, the prices will remain
different," he said.
Although this approach has largely
been the case in the past, the new policy
cements standardisation in future pricing
of Defence clothing.
Col Kohl said the new policy would
take effect on November 1 with the price
of many items set to be updated.
"This is the first time that prices have
been updated since 2008, so when mem-
bers next go to a clothing store they should
expect to see that prices have changed.
"Defence makes no profit from the
clothing it sells nor does it seek to recoup
distribution, transportation or storage
costs," he said.
"This new policy only applies to non-
combat clothing sold through clothing
stores. It does not affect combat clothing
or protective equipment."
Future price rises will now occur each
July and clothing stores will advise mem-
bers of price changes as they happen.

AS THE Defence Blood Challenge passed the
half-way mark on October 15, Army editor John
Wellfare made his contribution at the Red
Cross centre in Canberra.
Mr Wellfare's donation contributed to the
Army's strong lead in the challenge, with
almost double the number of donations as its
nearest rival, Air Force.
As Army went to print, the tally was:
Air Force: 313
