Previous Webinar Q&A – 28 November 2013

We welcomed MOD DCO registrants looking to learn how to win more business. Attendees were given the chance to ask their questions and have them answered by our experts, some of which are detailed below.

Q: Are there SME-specific opportunities available from the MOD’s £160bn spend plan?

A: Yes – the MOD have announced that 15% of their annual spend will go to SMEs by 2015 either directly or indirectly.

To find out about these opportunities first it is essential that you have registered your business on DCO and also have your profile set up correctly.

Q : How often should I be updating my MOD DCO alert profile?

A: We recommend updating or reviewing your profile on a regular basis to ensure you are not missing out on any new contracts. Use both keywords and CPV codes where possible. If you require any help or advice when reviewing your profile you can contact our experts by emailing helpdesk@contracts.mod.uk

Q: If there is no CPV code for what we do, how can we quickly search for our product?

A: Keywords are just as powerful as CPV codes. Your alert will show all contracts, backdated by three months, that contain your keywords anywhere within that contract.

Welcome to MOD DCO Free Webinars: A new way to win more business with DCO!

tick_stxA6D9We are delighted to launch a new programme of DCO webinars designed to help you win more business with MOD DCO. We kicked off our new webinar schedule on Wednesday 30 October, and with an outstanding response from DCO free registrants eager to optimise their use of DCO our first webinar was fully booked!

DCO registrants joined our defence contracts sourcing expert Barry to explore how the MOD is helping suppliers win more business, to discover where the MOD plans to spend £160bn in the next 10 years as detailed in the Department’s Equipment Plan, and importantly to learn how to optimise DCO to search for contracts and win more business.

Webinar attendees were then given the chance to ask their questions and have them answered by our experts; some of these questions are detailed below.

Q: How does DCO differ from the Government’s Contracts Finder website?

A: MOD DCO is the only official source of MOD contract opportunities. MOD commercial staff create, submit and advertise their relevant tender and contract notices valued at £10,000 and above on the MOD DCO portal, therefore DCO is the first and only official publisher of MOD contract opportunities over £10,000.

Q: In the awarding authority option box what is the word or phrase that should be used to receive only MOD contracts?

A: MOD DCO is designed to help you optimise your business, therefore during your search you may see examples of contracts that are suitable for your business outside the MOD. However, if you only wish to view MOD contract opportunities then within the awarding authority option box enter: “MOD”, “DE&S” and “defence”.

Q: If you have a question about a contract on offer, who do you contact – the company offering the tender directly or DCO?

A: If you have any questions regarding a contract on offer then please speak to the awarding authority detailed on the contract. However, our defence contract sourcing experts are on hand if you require any assistance – email: helpdesk@contracts.mod.uk

Q: What is the difference between MOD DCO and the Defence Contracts International portal?

A: MOD DCO provides you with access to all MOD contract opportunities over £10,000. However, Defence Contracts International (DCI) provides you with all the content available on DCO PLUS access to further defence and security industry contracts including the aerospace, aviation, counter terrorism, emergency services, homeland security and humanitarian aid sectors in the UK, Europe and Globally.
