techUK's DCBF launches new collaboration code of practice
techUK's Defence Commercial Business Forum, in partnership with the commercial senior leadership team in Defence Digital, has launched a new code of practice.
Over the past year, techUK's Defence Commercial Business Forum (DCBF), has been working with the commercial senior leadership team in the MOD's Defence Digital organisation to develop a new collaboration Code of Practice. The Code aims to improve business relationships and enhance collaboration between the department and its suppliers.
The Code addresses some of the key issues which have caused friction in the past when dealings between industry and the department were more traditional and distant; and aims to develop closer working between all parties through collaboration rather than adversarial engagement. Both industry and the MOD agree that by adopting a more transparent process of sharing of information earlier, the conduct of business should become more effective and efficient.
techUK encourages members to share the Code within their companies, and hopes that in doing so this will lead to confirmation that your company would be willing to be a signatory to the Code. Both techUK and Defence Digital believe the Code can make a real difference to the conduct of business, and it is hoped it will provide a useful tool for all parties involved in commercial discussions going forward.
Please find a copy of the Code of Practice attached below.
If you have any questions, please do get in touch with techUK's Head of Defence Programme Fred Sugden.
