Tasman Scheme - Apr 2017
Tasman Scheme Nominations now Open
The Tasman Scheme is a joint activity between the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF). The Scheme seeks to reward selected ADF Reserve Junior Officers and Junior Non-Commissioned Officers (JNCOs) for their overall performance, dedication and commitment to Reserve service. This year the Scheme is open to Junior Officers as well as JNCOs.
ADF Tasman Scheme recipients will be seconded to a NZDF unit where they will train with the NZDF for two weeks. This is reciprocated with Junior Officers and Junior Non-Commissioned Officers of the NZDF Reserves being seconded to an ADF unit.
Nominations are made by the Commanding Officer or Officer Commanding where ADF Reserve Junior Officer and Junior Non-Commissioned Officers meet the eligibility criteria.
For information on the Scheme and how to nominate visit the Awards and Recognition section of the Defence Reserves Support website. Further information can also be found in MILPERSMAN Part 8 CH 3 .
