The Ministry of Defence (MOD) has announced a plan to relaunch its food supply solution that meets the needs of the British Armed Forces in both the UK and overseas, where a contracted food service is not provided.
The requirement includes the sourcing and distribution of food, in-flight meals, bottled water and other beverages, and catering consumables.
The MOD is keen to encourage the involvement of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in delivering this requirement, consistent with the Government Procurement for Growth agenda.
It would like to develop its procurement strategy by seeking the views of the industry on how the requirement might best be met and hopes to engage with suppliers by inviting companies to complete a short questionnaire.
The closing date for expressing interest in this requirement is 23 January 2016, and questionnaire responses should be submitted no later than 30 January 2016.
