Welcome to DPRTE
Connecting the Defence Procurement Supply Chain
With spend in the defence sector amounting to over £19 billion per year and a pledge to meet Nato’s target of spending 2% of national income on defence every year until 2020 in the Chancellor’s summer budget, the procurement function within defence has never been more important. Managing the supply chain, ensuring efficiency savings are in line with the 2013 Spending Review and maximising R&D opportunities are just some of the issues currently facing procurement personnel in the defence sector.
Supported by DE&S and other MOD organisations and trade associations, Defence Procurement, Research, Technology & Exportability (DPRTE) 2016 provides a unique opportunity and platform for the defence procurement marketplace to interact within areas such as innovation, technology, exporting, business growth, procurement skills, and buyer and supplier engagement.
DPRTE 2016 is the must-attend event for anyone involved in procurement within the defence sector.
