What are Military Tenders?

When a government organisation such as the Ministry of Defence (MoD) or any of its operating arms require works, goods, and services specifically for the nation’s armed forces, a tender notice will be published. This tender notice invites relevant suppliers operating within the defence industry to bid for the contract.

Military contracts in the UK cover all the Frontline Commands in defence procurement, such as the Royal Navy, the Royal Airforce, and the British Army. The types of military contracts up for bid are vast and can include anything from military vehicle contracts and cyber security tenders to maintenance tenders and military defence equipment contracts. MoD tenders can even cover research and development (R&D) and the procurement of ammunition.

Why Bid for a Military Tender?

Bidding on UK military contracts can be incredibly lucrative and beneficial for businesses, especially if the supplier is a Small and Medium Enterprise (SME).

The Ministry of Defence is committed to providing support for small businesses looking to work in the defence sector with the hopes of becoming the customer of choice for these suppliers. In this way, the MoD aims to create a competitive and sustainable supply chain for SMEs, allowing them to become the sole providers of equipment and support to the Armed Forces.

The introduction of the Acquisition Pipeline by the MoD in 2022 was a step towards this commitment. The Acquisition Pipeline provides suppliers with a forward look at potential military and defence procurement opportunities across sectors. This forward look allows small businesses to engage earlier with key stakeholders, helping them get ahead of the competition.

The MoD is also hoping to make procurement systems and the procurement process easier to navigate to help improve the engagement by SME suppliers.

With so much to help suppliers in this realm, businesses that are not tendering for military contracts are losing out on huge growth opportunities. Sign up for Tracker today to start finding and winning more military defence contracts that are relevant to your business.

Finding Public Sector in the Public Sector

The Ministry of Defence is one of the biggest public sector procurement organisations in Europe and the single biggest spending customer in the UK. With a commitment to spending over £190 billion over the next decade on equipment and support, they are constantly publishing new military contract opportunities.

Military & Defence Tender Contracts in the UK

While the MoD itself may publish military defence tenders, operating arms within this government body regularly do so as well. Here are a few of the MoD operating arms that may seek to procure works, goods and services for a public sector supplier:

  • The Defence Infrastructure Organisation: The Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) is in charge of planning, building, maintaining, and servicing infrastructure for the Armed Forces. Tenders published by the DIO can include technical infrastructure, housing projects, and utility management.

  • Strategic Command: The Strategic Command (previously known as the Joint Forces Command) is responsible for the development and management of joint capabilities across land, air, and sea domains. Military defence contracts published by this arm include cyber security solutions, as well as information and communication technology systems.

  • Defence Equipment & Support: The role of the Defence Equipment & Support (DE&S) department is to supply the Armed Forces with equipment and support services. Military defence tenders that the DE&S publish can include ammunition, vehicles, and guidance systems.
