more than just MOd tenders

At Supply2Defence we know that you’re interested in more than just MOD and blue light tender opportunities, which is why our research team publish an average of 3,000 awards and notices from the UK & ROI each week into our defence sourcing portal – ranging from cyber security to construction.   

It’s important to remember that defence procurement is not just open to military goods suppliers in areas such as maritime, aerospace, satellites, emergency services, civil security, humanitarian aid, and research and development (R&D) – but to virtually every supplier of any product or service imaginable. 

The Ministry of Defence launched its new Defence Sourcing Portal DSP on 15th February where in time all of their defence opportunities will be advertised. Prior to 15th, they used the Defence Contracts Online portal to publish MOD tenders. Please note that suppliers can still use both the Defence Sourcing Portal and Defence Contracts Online to view MOD opportunities. And remember, all contracts that appear in the Defence Sourcing Portal, also appear in S2D as part of our wider defence contracts offering.

Our flexible packages are designed to support you to find more than just MOD opportunities, which is why our packages can provide you with access to UK security and civil opportunities. You can manage this access yourself from within your account! Take the hard work out of it with Supply2Defence.

A question we are always asked is ‘can SMEs win opportunities with UK Defence buyers?’, and our answer is always YES!

The MOD’s Small and Medium-sized Enterprise Action Plan 2019-2022 urges small businesses to reach out to the defence sector and actively look for defence contracts. And with the MOD spending over £20 billion a year on its procurement requirements and the UK meeting its NATO pledge to spend 2% of national income on defence, the marketplace has never been more attractive.

Whether you’re already supplying to defence and are looking for further opportunities or are active elsewhere in the public sector but interested in the MOD, let Supply2Defence be your gateway to finding new opportunities to grow your business.

Registering for free on our Supply2Defence platform automatically gives you access to all UK MOD and blue light contracts and awards! Plus, you can choose to cover more ground and more buyers if you wish. We publish more contract opportunities and awards than anywhere else thanks to our dedicated research team.
