SSRO consultation to improve support on non-competed defence contracts

The Single Source Regulations Office (SSRO) is seeking feedback on proposals for improving the support it provides to stakeholders to help them understand and apply the regulatory framework for non-competed defence contracts.

The SSRO receives and responds to a wide range of queries from stakeholders about the regulatory framework for non-competed defence contracts and how it should be applied to regulated contracts. Most queries are dealt with by signposting enquirers to existing SSRO guidance. Some queries, however, are more complex in nature and require detailed responses. Responding to these queries involves more extensive consideration by SSRO staff and usually requires enquirers to provide additional information about the terms of specific contracts and the issues underpinning their queries.

The SSRO wants to provide more effective and timely responses to such contract-specific queries. This includes giving formal opinions more quickly when relevant matters are referred to the SSRO. Developing these aspects of the SSRO’s support to stakeholders will better assist the Ministry of Defence and its suppliers to deliver the improvements in defence acquisition set out in the government’s Defence and Security Industrial Strategy .

The SSRO is seeking feedback from stakeholders on the improvement proposals outlined in its consultation paper. The proposals are intended to provide a more accessible, timely and relevant service to meet stakeholders’ needs. The feedback we receive will be used to further refine the proposals and inform our decisions on implementation.   

Following consideration of the consultation responses, the SSRO will publish details in spring 2024 of any changes it will make to the way it responds to stakeholder queries.

This consultation closes at 5pm on 20th December 2023
