What does the outcome of the General Election mean for defence procurement?

BiP Group logo The outcome of the General Election is a hung parliament, with no political party securing an overall majority. So what does this mean for businesses like yours that supply the public sector?

As you’ll know, the public sector is a huge and complex beast. The reality is that while headlines will inevitably be focused on turmoil, uncertainty and party politics, the real day-to-day delivery of public services will continue unabated.

Everything that was required before the election is still required today. Whatever future shape the government takes, the need for smart, engaged and well-informed suppliers will continue. In fact, investment into public services and infrastructure is one thing that never changes – even if politicians have differing views about priorities and timings.

With uncertainty comes opportunity. Knowing what the public sector needs, who is responsible for buying it and how to reach them is vital for businesses who supply the public sector. BiP Group – the undisputed expert in public sector procurement and supply chains – is the only candidate worth your vote when it comes to intelligence and insight.
