BEIS small and medium enterprises (SME) action plan

How BEIS is improving opportunities for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to supply to the department.



The government has set a target that by 2022, £1 in every £3 it spends will reach SMEs directly or through the supply chain.

The BEIS SME Action Plan summarises changes in the procurement process made in recent years and sets out specific actions the department will undertake to promote increased spend with SME organisations in future.
