How Much Does The UK Spend On Humanitarian Aid Procurement?
In 2015, the UK spent £12.1 billion on overseas aid, which matches the UN’s target for all developed countries to spend 0.7% of GDP on overseas aid.
The Spring Budget of 2023 has allocated an extra £5 billion to be invested in defence expenditure for the upcoming two years (2023/24 and 2024/25). Furthermore, an additional £2 billion per annum will be dedicated to defence spending in the subsequent years until 2027/28. This substantial increase amounts to a total of £11 billion over the span of five years, demonstrating the commitment to bolstering the defence sector.
Disaster Relief Tenders
The public sector will often give funding to projects that will reduce the chance of damage from future disasters. In 2016, the UK Government spent £700m on flood defence projects to protect communities against increasingly extreme weather.
After a natural disaster like an earthquake or flooding, public sector bodies will often publish procurement opportunities that will assist them with the clean-up procedure.
If your organisation wants to supply disaster relief goods, equipment or emergency services, you can sign up to receive relevant tender alerts to your email.
Humanitarian Aid Tender Requirements
If a disaster was to occur, the Government will source goods and services from suppliers and in some cases, these tenders must meet certain requirements.
For example, the MOD will only work with organisations that have achieved Cyber Essentials certification, which the Government made a mandatory requirement from January 2016. All suppliers looking to do business in the defence sector should invest in this certification.
The UK government also has the right to expedite the procurement process in situations such as disasters where no formal bidding process may be required. The opportunity for suppliers is still great however as often the market is niche and the opportunity presented by DCI’s services allow business to expand globally.
