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
