Due to demand, two sessions are scheduled to run from 09:00 – 10:30 and 11:00 – 12:30 on the 6th November 2019. We will initially restrict attendance to two delegates per company to enable the maximum number of companies to participate.
The United Kingdom Ministry of Defence is considering an exciting opportunity to revise the approach to contracting expertise in support of Digital & ICT Roles. The intention is to select a number of suppliers onto a Flexible Delivery Partner Framework (FDPF) covering all D&IT capability and expertise required to deliver MOD Digital IT Programs and transformation for the next three to five years.
This industry engagement session aims to inform the market of the intention and details around the procurement and to get constructive feedback from potential suppliers around the requirements and capabilities as well as the structure of the procurement.
MoD sees this Framework as an opportunity to develop strategic partnerships and close relationships with and between successful suppliers to support the delivery of all IT programs across D&IT in MoD.
Developing strategic partners is a key enabler for MoD to improve both outcomes and speed of delivery and MoD is looking to change its approach as well.
To achieve this MoD will aim to foster mature relationships that encourage greater collaboration between all parties. By providing early sight of pipelines partners will be able to better plan resourcing and support and explore mutually beneficial commercial models for specific pieces of work.
This planned procurement provides a unique opportunity for suppliers across the spectrum to work in partnership with MoD over the next 3 to 5 years to support the delivery of future IT platforms and digital services that will enable the MoD’s ambitions around modernising defence and providing real information advantage for Defence.
