MOD procurement activity

As one of the largest public procurement organisations in Europe, it is the MOD’s responsibility to ensure that UK security is protected.

The MOD works with suppliers from all over the world to fulfill the needs of its procurement activity. In the latest edition of “Doing Business with Defence” it states that:

“Defence has a major role to play in delivering the government’s growth and enterprise agenda – the MOD accounts for over 40% of all government spend with industry“

The organisation is responsible for many complex and technologically advanced projects, therefore it must work with businesses with unique expert capabilities when completing work in the following categories:

  • Technology: cloud and digital, network services, software, and technology products and services
  • Equipment & Support: ships, aircraft, vehicles, weapons, missiles (maintenance and repair)
  • Infrastructure: construction, hard and soft facilities management, property consultancy


Opportunities for Suppliers

The MOD wants to eliminate the challenges faced by SME businesses when looking for work with the defence sector.

The “Doing Business with Defence” brochure outlines areas of opportunity for suppliers that want to work with the defence sector – some that have already been included in the Defence Equipment Plan.
