New DCO website and supplier portal launches during DSEI 2017

Defence Contracts Online, the official source of UK MOD contracts, has launched its newly redesigned website and supplier portal. DSEI exhibitors are encouraged to visit Stand S4-252 to learn more and register. 

Harriet Baldwin has endorsed the relaunch saying “Welcome to our new Supplier Portal. It brings a wide range of supplier-focused information, including current and future opportunities and support to innovation, together in one place.

Over the next decade we are committed to spending over £178 Bn on equipment and support, with the MOD accounting for over 40% of all government spend with industry. We want to encourage innovation and make it easier for new and smaller businesses to identify, compete for and win opportunities with the MOD. This will help us to deliver our vision of a vibrant, sustainable and competitive UK industrial base.” 

The new website brings a fresh, modern look to the DCO portal. With a clean, uncluttered design, improved functionality and refreshed content, the new website strengthens the relationship between the MOD and its suppliers by making it easier to access information on contract opportunities.

In addition to publishing information on all UK MOD tender and contract opportunities valued at £10,000 and above, the new website features a comprehensive news section, MOD announcements, market reports and blog features. There is also information on upcoming events to engage with the MOD and prime contractors, webinars to help you get the most out of the DCO service, and content to help your organisation become better informed and equipped to do business with the MOD.

There is also important information on the Cyber Essentials scheme and how to become certified, a Contact Directory featuring contact details for many of the MOD’s major executive agencies, teams and operating centres, and valuable content on innovation within the MOD’s supply chain.

Access to DCO is completely free. Registered suppliers can search for opportunities 24/7 and receive daily alerts which notify them of opportunities which match their company’s business activity.

The new website, which was officially launched at this year’s DSEI event by Under Secretary of State and Minister for Defence Procurement Harriett Baldwin MP, is now live and located at www.contracts.mod.uk. To register simply click on supplier registration or buyer registration to get started
