Procurement activity covers a very wide range of requirements, from paper clips, to IT infrastructure to medical equipment.
As outlined within the 2015 Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR), the MOD recognises the importance of SMEs to the defence supply chain and has therefore set a 25% target for SME procurement spend by 2020. SMEs, including from adjacent sectors, are able to bring flexibility, boost innovation and increase competition, all of which means industry can deliver the best value for money capability to the Armed Forces.
Firmly established as the UK’s leading defence procurement and supply chain event, DPRTE 2019, will provide industry with a unique opportunity to showcase goods and services, in addition to being able to engage directly with both the key personnel and organisations responsible for setting strategy and operationally delivering an annual budget of over £19 billion.
