The opportunity your organisation cannot afford to miss

The UK defence sector spends over £19Bn per year on equipment and services and has committed to £160Bn spend across ten years in the MOD’s Ten Year Equipment Plan 2012-2022. With the Government’s aspiration that 25% of public procurement expenditure should be with SMEs, this represents a fantastic opportunity for organisations looking to supply to the defence sector.
