Join our online Introduction to UK MoD Procurement Training Workshop which will provide you with understanding of the UK MoD procurement process and how your company can reach decisions about bidding and managing contracts with the UK MoD. 

Defence contracts for the UK are regulated by law within the Defence & Security Public Contracts Regulations 2011 (DSPCR 2011). The law governs how contracts are competed and placed in the defence and security sector. However, the UK MoD have other internal processes which govern how business cases are approved and it is often this process which is largely mis-understood. Understanding all the rules and processes involved is therefore vital to ensure your business knows how to work with the UK MoD.
