Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade)
The Australian Government has contracted their services for specialist security roles almost continuously since the formation of the company (in 2001) until now.
I first had dealings with the company in Greece circa 2002. At that time, IR fulfilled a substantial contract for the Hellenic Ministry of Public Order specifying new digital communications and security systems for the Greek Police. They also developed the venue security risk assessment and design specifications for the 32 key sporting and non-sporting venues for the Athens 2004 Olympic Games.
Austrade’s office in Brazil also had a close association with IR after the company signed an initial million dollar contract in to provide security design services to the Prefeitura (Municipality) of Rio de Janeiro. This engagement involved IR providing a wide array services from (2003 to 2015) including drafting the Security Master Plan for Rio Olympic Park and associated venues.
In 2010 Austrade contracted IR to review security at several Delhi hotels and deliver a security and emergency management plan for the Business Club Australia program in India. IR also prepared the plan and coordinated security for Austrade events and activities in Indonesia: in Jakarta, Bandung, Medan and Surabaya,
Austrade has contracted IR to review security at Austrade offices in Atlanta, Auckland, Dubai, Istanbul, Johannesburg, Toronto, Milan, San Francisco, Sao Paulo, Tripoli and Vancouver. This included risk assessments, physical security systems and emergency management and response procedures.
In 2019 IR delivered a risk assessment and security planning workshop for Phuket International Airport, Thailand. In 2020 they delivered security risk assessments and training workshops at Suvarnabhumi Airport and Don Muang Airport in Thailand. These projects involved IR working closely with security personnel at Airports of Thailand (AoT) and Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT).
