This Week in Government Tenders

This week’s highlights: Defence Innovation Hub

If you’ve been involved in a government procurement, you would know the timeframes are lengthy for every stage of the process. RFT releases can be delayed, evaluations can run for up to 12 months and negotiations can add another 6 months onto the process. For SMEs, this kind of process can be too resource intensive. Furthermore the long timeframes don’t lend themselves to new innovations which would be obsolete by contract signature.

In an effort to provide opportunities for SMEs and to introduce innovation, Defence have introduced the Defence Innovation Hub. It replaces the unsolicited proposals portal, and allows companies with new innovations to propose their ideas for consideration. This portal is open all year round, and from time to time a call for a specific proposal is sought. This week sees two such calls for submissions seeking a Small Unmanned Aerial System and a Next Gen Wireless system.

If you are after specific advice on this or any other opportunity listed below, feel free to contact us.
