Keeping ahead of the curve and giving your business the best possible advantage is set to become even easier with the upcoming launch of the new tender alerts service ‘Supply2Defence’.
Supply2Defence is brought to you by BiP Solutions and is the latest addition to the Supply2 family, focusing on opportunities within the defence, security and emergency service (‘blue light’) sectors.
In FY 2017/18, the MOD spent almost £21 billion on defence and security, accounting for over 40% of all UK central government procurement spend and representing the fifth biggest defence budget in the world, with over 16,000 suppliers.
This budget, together with the Government’s aspiration that 25% of public procurement expenditure should be with SMEs directly or as part of the supply chain by 2022, represents a fantastic opportunity for organisations of all sizes looking to supply to the defence sector.
It’s always worth reiterating that opportunities in defence are not limited to the tanks, submarines, ships and aircraft that make up the typical defence budget. Procurement activity covers a very wide range of requirements such as facilities management, goods and services, catering, IT, logistics, training and fleet management.
Supply2Defence provides the UK and Ireland’s largest database of defence, security and blue light tenders, publishing more notices than any other provider – including government portals.
This single source solution allows users to browse all the latest defence, blue light and security tender notices and awards.
Users will be able to create the perfect plan to grow their business with public sector tenders. Daily updates, based on data extracted from over 3000 sources, will provide customers with the peace of mind that opportunities will not be missed.
Accessibility and flexibility are both key to the service, which offers free registration to new customers with a free subscription to the local area of their choice.
Customers then have the option to ‘pay as they grow’ with monthly and annual subscriptions available. The service also provides resources and support to help customers win more business.
