CBI responds to defence procurement White Paper

The CBI has responded to the publication of the Better Defence Acquisition White Paper by the Ministry of Defence (MoD).

Matthew Fell, CBI Director for Competitive Markets, said:

"Defence procurement must give the Armed Forces the equipment, support and technology they need, at a price that gives the taxpayer real value for money. When the public finances are so tight, ministers must improve efficiency,

“The GoCo procurement model is a bold, new approach but the Government must engage widely with the defence industry to build confidence in its ability to deliver.

“The Government needs to strike the right balance with the new Single Source Regulations Office (SSRO) so that it drives competitive pricing on the one hand, whilst maintaining the incentives for continued investment in the UK’s world class defence industry.”
