Looking for Defence Tenders and procurement opportunities? The defence sector is not just open to large suppliers; it also works with SMEs across several different areas such as research and development (R&D), maritime, aerospace, cybersecurity, satellites, emergency services, civil security, humanitarian aid as well as any other good or services provided by most SMEs.
According to the Ministry of Defence, the coming years will see the defence industry growth across defence procurement. The United Kingdom is the world leader in developing defence technology which has contributed to a strong economy.
The defence marketplace in the UK has grown in the last few years and now SMEs and large suppliers have a great opportunity to find tenders as the government seeks ways to satisfy the growth. Therefore, the United Kingdom has taken some crucial measures to make sure that small and medium enterprises are able to compete in the growing marketplace.
For instance, the Ministry of Defence spends £20.9 billion each year and 25 percent of that amount is what the Ministry of Defence spends with small and medium enterprises. Furthermore, the MOD has a diverse supply base. Ministry of Defence organisations like the Defence Infrastructure Organisation and Defence Equipment and Support have released new plans regarding procurement and are looking to work with a diverse supply base. This means businesses like yours will have more chances of getting tenders.
Besides, the Ministry of Defence spends over £835 million annually directly with the SMEs but much more through its extensive supply chain. The MOD is also the biggest spending customer in the UK with an outlay that equals to more than 40 percent of what the central government spends. That is lots of opportunities.
