FCO Counter-Proliferation Programme 2016-2017 accepts bids in Russia

Counter-Proliferation continues to be a priority for the UK government. It is central to the government’s efforts to safeguard Britain’s national security and to support stability around the world.


Bidding Round

The Counter Proliferation Programme is now opening a bidding round to invite proposals for project initiatives, which support three strategic priorities:

1.1 Denying access to chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) materials and expertise by non-state actors;

1.2 Prevent acquisition by states of capabilities (both WMD and conventional military capabilities) which would threaten stability and UK vital interests;

1.3 Supporting, strengthening and extending the ruled-based international system of counter proliferation treaties, regimes and organisations that underpins global security and prosperity.

We are looking for high-quality proposals which are clearly linked to one or more of these objectives and closely aligned to the Programme Strategy ( Programme Strategy 2016-17 (PDF, 406KB, 12 pages) ).

Please note that funding for the CP Programme is only assured for the next financial year (2016-17).
