How to advertise a sub contracting opportunity

Encouraging suppliers to offer wider access to procurement opportunities can enable a more diverse and innovative supply base with greater participation by Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).

If you are a supplier to MOD you are encouraged to advertise defence related sub-contracting opportunities using Defence Contracts Online. You may also wish to use this facility to advertise early market engagement events and future opportunities such as refreshing preferred supplier lists.
