AWARD® and the UK MOD

Supporting the successful delivery of procurements across the MOD since 2001

Commerce Decisions provides the AWARD® strategic procurement solution and expert services to support the effective planning, preparation and execution of procurements

We have a long and highly successful relationship with the MOD, beginning with the first deployment of AWARD® in 2001. AWARD® and our services have subsequently been widely adopted across MOD and a corporate license was put in place in 2013.

We work alongside the MOD to maximise efficiencies and standardise procurement processes across the organisation. Since 2001, we’ve supported thousands of MOD users on many projects:
