Innovative solutions for complex procurement initiatives

PUK is supporting the Ministry of Defence across a wide and challenging programme of procurement projects. Defence PPP projects are invariably large and complex, and can involve the setting up of innovative contracting structures and be based on leading edge technological assets. Some also contain novel and defence-only issues, and the projects are often being undertaken against a climate of rapidly changing military context.

The level and type of engagement that PUK provides varies according to circumstance. It includes the Development Partnership Agreement model, targeted “troubleshooting” project support via the MoD/PUK framework arrangement through to help desk advice, for example on commercialisation ideas.
