Workshop: Introduction to MoD Procurement – April 2024

Workshop: Introduction to MoD Procurement – April 2024

Join our in person workshop which will provide you with understanding of the UK MoD procurement process and how your company can reach decisions about bidding and managing contracts with the UK MoD.

Defence contracts for the UK are currently regulated by law within the Defence & Security Public Contracts Regulations 2011 (DSPCR 2011). The law governs how contracts are competed and placed in the defence and security sector. However the biggest changes ever to be made to this legislation was enacted in the UK Procurement Act 2023 on 26 October 2023, with the secondary legislation currently in draft.

Notwithstanding those changes, the UK MoD have other internal processes which govern how business cases are approved and it is often this process which is largely mis-understood. Understanding all the rules and processes involved is therefore vital to ensure your business knows how to work with the UK MoD.
