The Ministry of Defence (MOD) has announced the upcoming implementation of the Defence Sourcing Portal (DSP), the MOD’s new e-Sourcing platform. The DSP will modernise the way the MOD interacts with suppliers and be a one-stop shop to access all MOD contracting opportunities.

The DSP will facilitate secure online tendering for the MOD, increase ‘go to market’ efficiency and remove paper-based processes. The DSP will cover:

  • Advertising of MOD market opportunities (Replacing Defence Contracts Online)
  • Pre-Qualification for opportunities (Replacing Defence Contracts Online)
  • Tendering
  • Evaluation
  • E-Auction events
  • News and information on doing business with MOD

The MOD has issued an update on key milestones and a letter on preparing for Brexit in the Defence sector.

Gillian Cameron, SDP Programme Manager, said: "The Supplier Development Programme encourages all suppliers to be aware of the changes both in regard to the Ministry of Defence's change to a new online tendering system, as well as preparing for Brexit in procurement.

"As is our practice whenever there are changes to existing procurement procedures, the Supplier Development Programme will ensure these updates are reflected in our training materials so that Scottish micro, small and medium sized businesses receive the latest information and supporting resources to ensure they are tender ready for upcoming contract opportunities."

Suppliers can find additional information on the Defence Sourcing Portal by visiting the website.
