The MOD has set a target that 25% of its procurement spend will go directly and indirectly to small and medium sized businesses in 2022. To help break down the barriers that smaller businesses often face that can prevent them from potentially delivering on defence contracts, the MOD released a new SME action plan in January.

One practical way for SMEs to connect with buyers at the MOD will be available next month at Meet the Buyer 2022, a live virtual event hosted by the Supplier Development Programme in Scotland. Aimed at Scottish small and medium sized businesses, but open to all, the MOD will present on how to bid and ensure that SMEs have a fair opportunity to contribute to UK defence and security, and the ability to compete successfully in international markets.

Registration is free. Businesses should register in advance to attend Meet the Buyer 2022.
