star this property answer text <p>Preserving industrial capability can be used as a measure to protect a nation's security interests under the Article 346 exemption in certain circumstances. For example, there is a requirement to protect our freedom of action to design, integrate and build Royal Navy warships, as this is critical to national security. All procurement decisions are still subject to value for money considerations.</p><p>In the case of the Fleet Solid Support ships, the Article 346 exemption does not apply, because, as outlined in the 29 May 2018 letter to the Chair of the House of Commons Defence Committee, the ships are not deemed to be warships and there is no national security interest in limiting the competition to UK companies.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>European Union (EU) laws governing state aid do not apply to activity conducted outside the boundaries of the EU, however, the Ministry of Defence (MOD) makes no such distinction and treats all bidders who participate in its competitions equally.</p><p>State aid is generally prohibited under the Treaty of the Functioning of the EU, apart from under a few specific exemptions stipulated by legislation. Under EU and UK law, the mechanism available to the MOD for addressing state aid concerns is through the concept of an abnormally low tender, related to a specific competitive procurement. The MOD has the right to reject a tender if a grant of aid was not in accordance with EU and UK law.</p><p>The MOD takes open competition very seriously and is confident in the measures in place to ensure that the Fleet Solid Support ships' competitive process is conducted strictly in accordance with the EU regulations on state aid.</p> more like this
