To view our certificate.
Being a trusted supplier to the defence industry is central to the success of BiD Masters. Defence is our largest sector of expertise and our JOSCAR accreditation demonstrates that trust. The major benefit for our clients is that it allows our bid specialists to be assigned to a contract very quickly, which is essential given the time-critical nature of bids.
JOSCAR is an accreditation system for the aerospace, defence and security sectors. The system was established following an initiative led by ADS Group. It includes a growing number of prime contractors as registered buyers. It acts as a pre-qualification of suppliers, saving time and money in the selection process.
Common supplier data is held in a central system allowing the information to be accessed by all participating buying organisations.
JOSCAR is used by prime contractors, such as BAE Systems, Babcock, Leonardo, QinetiQ, Meggitt and NATS, and many other buying organisations. They use it to select key suppliers to be a part of their supply chain.
The benefits to buyers include:
There are many hurdles to overcome when appointing a contractor, especially in the defence, aerospace and security sectors. In some cases the time taken to overcome these hurdles exceeds the duration of the bid itself; our accreditation helps to overcome many of these hurdles.
As the bid specialist company of choice to support many of the defence primes in winning major contracts, our accreditation enables these companies, and the industry in general, to benefit from the stringent and ongoing checks carried out by JOSCAR.
