UK event security tenders

The UK defence and security market is open to suppliers from all over the world.

The national threat to the UK (England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland) from terrorism is substantial. To tackle terror threats, the UK Government wants to work with international and domestic suppliers to fulfil its latest security strategy, CONTEST.

After a string of high-profile terror attacks in recent years, the Government has increased manned security and barrier security to protect the public at major events, creating new opportunities for private sector suppliers.

The Department for Transport, the police, CPNI and the Home Office are all working with partners to enhance their security strategies and eliminate terrorist threats at events. If you are interested in finding tenders within the UK, find out more about tendering in this part of the world.
