As outlined within the National Security Strategy and Strategic Defence and Security Review 2015, The MOD are committed to enabling SMEs and non-traditional suppliers to bid for defence and security contracts more easily.
One important element in order to achieve this, is through the MOD working with their Prime Contractors, in order to maximise opportunities for the marketplace place through transparency of supply chain competition.
The DPRTE Supply Chain Engagement Zone brings together many of the key Prime Contractors that are currently engaged within the delivery of MOD projects, allowing visitors to book appointments for 1-2-1 meetings. Delegates can also visit the Supply Chain & Partnering Zone, which will see some of the Prime Contractors deliver sessions on supply chain opportunities available on current/future projects.
