Defence Sourcing Portal Update

27 Jan 2021 11:47 AM

Please find a letter below from Andrew Forzani, Chief Commercial Officer at the MOD about the new Defence Sourcing Portal (DSP).

Dear Industry Partner,

The Launch of the Defence Sourcing Portal (DSP)

Following on from the launch of the homepage earlier this month, I can confirm that we are on track for the full launch of the Defence Sourcing Portal on the 15th of February 2021.

I’d like to thank you for your support so far, we have already had more than 1,500 suppliers register on the DSP which is a key factor in enabling us to take this next step.

On the 15th February we will start using the DSP to advertise new opportunities, conduct prequalification, tender and subsequently evaluate tender submissions.

In readiness for this, there are a couple of things I’d like you to be aware of:

  1. Managing Opportunities during Transition
  1. Using the DSP

Again, thank you for your support so far, the launch of the DSP represents a significant step in modernising and improving the way we interact with our partners, and we are looking forward to the full launch on the 15th February. Until then I ask that you:

  1. If not already registered, please register your organisation’s details on the DSP in readiness for the full launch and browse the content on the new homepage.
  2. Continue to participate in our market opportunities listed on the Defence Contacts Online website, accessible directly at, or through the ‘VIEW OPPORTUNITIES’ button on the DSP homepage.
  3. Look out for news and updates on the new DSP homepage.
  4. Tell us what you think of the DSP by emailing us at – we really appreciate your feedback.

Further information can be found here and again, please contact if there are any further questions you would like to ask.
