Meeting of the Committee for Review of Public Procurement Policy for Defence Supply

Sub: 1st Meeting of the Committee for Review of Public Procurement Policy for Defence Supply on 1st May, 2017.

Dear

Government has constituted the above committee to connect MSMEs with Defence Procurement and I am pleased to inform that FISME has been taken as a permanent member of the Committee.

As you may be aware, the present public procurement policy for MSMEs reserve 20% of Government purchases from MSMEs, however, defence procurement has not been included in the policy.

By this initiative Government may have started stakeholders’ consultation on the feasibility of reserving some percentage of defence purchases from MSMEs.

We request your comments and past experiences on the barriers MSMEs generally face in defence supplies.

As the meeting of the Committee is slated on 1st May, 2017, we request your inputs by 27th April, 2017

Yours faithfully,

(C S Prakash)

Chairman

MSME Defence Suppliers’ Group
