The UK Ministry of Defence accounts for over 40% of all central government spend with industry. The Department has a diverse range of requirements, including everything from military fighting vehicles to facilities management. MOD customers include our Armed Forces and national security agencies.
The MOD buys a wide variety of goods, services and solutions, ranging from clothing and food to satellite communication systems; from construction of buildings to provision of staff; and from musical instruments to medical products and services.
In recent years, the MOD has implemented changes in its procurement strategy to access new technologies and broaden the supplier base with both SMEs and non-traditional defence suppliers.
With the introduction of its SME Action Plan, the Department is currently spending £835 million per annum directly with small and medium-sized businesses, a figure which does not include the many opportunities which lie indirectly within the supply chain.
Jim Carter, Commercial Director Supply Chain at the Ministry of Defence, has engaged with the MOD’s major suppliers and “asked them to report SME spend through their supply chain.” This is something the MOD will continue to do on an annual basis.
