3 things you didn’t know about your DCI subscription

Defence Contracts International is the leading provider of public and private sector tenders in the defence industry. We work in partnership with governments globally to help them improve their defence and security procurement capabilities, and work with organisations in order to help them grow their business within this sector.

By subscribing to DCI Contracts Plus or Premium packages, you have exclusive access to one of the world’s leading contract alert and business tools, allowing you to search and find extensive information on relevant defence contracts. However, it is important to note that your DCI subscription offers so much more besides this.

Here are three further key benefits that you may not be aware of:

Access the world of commercial tenders

Your DCI subscription does not just include access to government or defence commercial tenders. Tens of thousands of commercial tenders and infrastructure tenders are also published in the UK and internationally. DCI’s Commercial Projects tool enables users to gain access to this contract information, including the contact details of key purchasing personnel within 24 hours of a commercial contract being published.

Explore the full range of tender opportunities

It is a common misconception that defence procurement involves the acquisition of weaponry and little else. In fact, the defence industry stretches far beyond planes, tanks and warships – it encompasses all the supplies, services and maintenance works needed to fit out, furnish and run an army barracks, for example. This can include everything from the signage and lighting to painting and decorating. Building maintenance, property management, catering and cleaning, office furniture and IT equipment all play a huge and integral role in many defence construction and infrastructure contracts. Your DCI subscription collates these numerous and varied contracts in one searchable database.

Extend your business reach globally

Defence suppliers looking to expand their business outside the UK can use their DCI subscription to do just that. DCI publishes tender opportunities from across the globe, including Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and North America. The countries of the NATO alliance, which includes most European nations as well as the USA and Canada, are encouraged to spend a minimum of 2% of their GDP on defence spending. In South America, Brazil is by far the highest spender on defence, with military expenditure set at $27.5 billion in 2019.

DCI is one of the world’s largest providers of defence contracts, enabling your business to maximise its exposure to relevant opportunities globally. DCI Commercial Projects publishes contracts across all sectors in defence, from laying the foundation works for an army accommodation unit to full post-construction facilities management.
