UK MoD MARS Fleet Solid Support Ship Industry Day

UK MoD MARS Fleet Solid Support Ship Industry Day

Published: 14 August 2017

UK MoD MARS Fleet Solid Support Ship Industry Day – 26th September 2017 – Prior Information Notice – Market Engagement Process

The Ministry of Defence (MoD), Defence Equipment & Support (DE&S), Commercially Supported Shipping (CSS) team are considering options to optimise the delivery of up to 3 Military Afloat Reach and Sustainability (MARS) Fleet Solid Support (FSS) Sea Going Vessels. These vessels will have the capability to provide the solid sustainment (food, stores and ammunition) required for Maritime Task Groups and Joint Forces. This will allow the UK to achieve full use of the new Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers. The MoD has issued a Prior Information Notice (PIN), through which they will invite representation from the Ship Design and Ship Build Industry sectors to engage with MoD DE&S to inform the feasibility of the acquisition options that are currently being considered. This Market Engagement process will involve an initial Industry Day with bilateral meetings to be held at a later date with potential prime contractors who have been invited to participate further. The Industry day will take place on 26 September 2017 in Bristol, United Kingdom.

Further Information can be found in the PIN which was published on 2 August 2017 in MoD Defence Contracts Online  https://www.contracts.mod.uk/ under the title “Military Afloat Reach and Sustainability (MARS) Fleet Solid Support (FSS)” and the Official Journal of the European Union under reference number 2017/S 146-303135.

The MOD is publishing this announcement without any commitment to issue an invitation to tender or place a contract. Accordingly, any expenditure, work or effort undertaken prior to contract award is a matter solely for the commercial judgement of potential suppliers
