EDINBURGH PARKS, Australia, Jan. 2 (UPI) -- BAE Systems Australia has dropped out of a tender process with the Australian military after two employees breached tender protocols.

The breach of Australian Defense Department protocols occurred in the initial tender process for Joint Project 2072 Phase 2B of the army's battlespace communications network.

"We felt that we had developed a strong, locally based solution to meet Army's battlespace communications needs," said BAE Systems Australia Chief Executive David Allott. "However, how we behave is just as important as how we operate and we are determined to act responsibly whenever and wherever any inappropriate behavior is detected.

"While this is the first time that we have identified an issue of this nature, we view this breach extremely seriously. We have commenced a review of our business proposal development processes to ensure that it does not occur again."

The nature of the breach of protocols wasn't detailed but the company said two employees have been dismissed.
