The UK defence marketplace

The MOD is consistently one of the highest-spending defence organisations in the world, and leads the way on innovation and engagement with suppliers from across all areas of industry.

UK Spending

The UK is committed to spending more than ever before on the MOD. At least 20% of spend will be on equipment – but much more will be on supporting people, assets and infrastructure. Most of what MOD buys is common goods and services.

Investment

This increased investment is not just going to big businesses – MOD’s spend flows through its supply chain, benefiting companies of all sizes. Whether you’re a new micro business or established SME opportunities exist today.

MOD Tenders

The MOD has an annual procurement spend of more than £20 billion making it a lucrative marketplace for public sector and defence suppliers. The Ministry of Defence accounts for over 40% of all government spend with industry.

That said, it is largest procurement organisation in central government, managing some of the most complex and technologically advanced requirements in the world.

To stay innovative, the MOD relies on suppliers from a range of backgrounds to support its procurement strategy which makes them a valuable public sector customer to have on board.

MOD procurement breakdown

To ensure that the UK remains a safe place for citizens to work and live in, the Ministry of Defence’s procurement activity is extremely varied. MOD procurement can be broken into three categories: technology, equipment and infrastructure.

Technology: To stay at the forefront of innovation, the MOD is investing in technology such as cloud and digital, network services, software and technology products and services

Equipment and Support: The MOD relies on the support of businesses UK wide to procure the equipment and support services the Armed Forces require. It is not uncommon for the MOD to release tender opportunities for goods and services including: ships, submarines, aircraft, vehicles, commodities and support (maintenance and repair).

Infrastructure: The MOD’s Defence Equipment Plan reveals that the organisation spends over £3 billion annually on infrastructure and defence estates. Areas of spend include construction, hard and soft facilities management, property consultancy, professional services and utilities.

Although these are the main areas of focus within the marketplace, like all public sector organisations the MOD must buy everything from pencils to uniforms to cleaning or catering services, all using the public procurement process. Which means almost any business can enter this market.

SME Action Plan

The MOD has announced that it spent approximately £835 million per annum direct with SMEs, a figure which does not include many opportunities which lie within the wider supply chain.

In July 2019, the then Defence Procurement Minister Stuart Andrew MP launched the MOD’s “Small and Medium-sized Enterprise Action Plan.” The plan highlights the importance of having a diverse supply chain and encourages new and non-traditional suppliers, including SMEs to bid for work within the defence supply chain.

Mr Andrew has said: ‘Over the next decade we are committed to spending over £186 billion on equipment and support. Defence has a major role to play in delivering the government’s growth and enterprise agenda.”

We want to encourage Innovation and wider Small and Medium-sized Enterprise participation throughout our supply chain and will continue to pursue policies and practices that make it easier for new and smaller businesses to identify, compete for and win opportunities with the Ministry of Defence.”

Engaging SMEs

To help deliver this vision set out by the Ministry of Defence it has set a target that 25% of the organisation’s procurement spend by value will go to SMEs by 2022, whether as direct contracts or through the supply chain.

So far, the MOD has delivered on several projects that support SME suppliers by ensuring that its department engages directly with SMEs.

Three-quarters of the MOD’S spend with smaller businesses is through its supply chain. One of the main focuses for the MOD moving forward is evaluating how the MOD and its major suppliers can support SMEs in the supply chain.

With new opportunities opening every day, now is a prime time to start looking for work within this marketplace.
