The UK Ministry of Defence spends approximately £23bn on the procurement of goods and services with industry each year, making it one of the UK’s single largest buying organisations. Here DCB Editor Paul Elliott discusses the MOD supply chain with Commercial Director of the MOD, Steven Morgan, at DPRTE 2016.
In this interview Mr Morgan discusses SMEs, early engagement, and offers tips to businesses hoping to win MOD contracts.
Defence buying isn’t restricted to military supplies and materiel; its contracts include transferrable technologies such as civil transport, research and development, blue light services, cyber security solutions, and communications to name but a few.
