Since 2010, the Ministry of Defence (MOD) has placed around 2,700 contracts between £1 million and £3 million and around 3,600 contracts over £3 million. These figures include Defence Equipment and Support, and the Submarine Delivery Agency.

Further information, including contracts which are due to be agreed in the next 12 months, the cost and number of officials to monitor contracts since 2010 and those held by other MOD agencies and public bodies, is not held centrally.

The MOD published its first Acquisition Pipeline on 13 June 2022, which is a forward look of future potential procurement activity. This publication can be found on GOV.UK:
