Doing Business with Defence: Opening up our Supply Chain

The success of UK defence depends on a vibrant and diverse supply chain generating innovative solutions in order to maintain military advantage. Attracting new suppliers into the defence market is pivotal to this goal.

The MOD’s Strategic Supplier Management team has delivered a transformation in both approach and achievements through a comprehensive hearts and minds campaign working internally and with its largest suppliers to make it easier and more attractive to do business with Defence.

Smaller businesses can now thrive and make a full contribution, and this is reflected in significantly increased spending with SMEs by £1,431 Million.
