Abstract [en]

Purpose – A deteriorating security situation and an increased need for defence equipment calls for new forms of collaboration between Armed Forces and the defence industry. This paper aims to investigate the ways in which the accelerating demand for increased security of supply of equipment and supplies to the Armed Forces requires adaptability in the procurement process that is governed by laws on public procurement (PP).

Design/methodology/approach – This paper is based on a review of current literature as well as empiricaldata obtained through interviews with representatives from the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration and the Swedish defence industry.

Findings – Collaboration with the globalized defence industry requires new approaches, where the PP rulesmake procurement of a safe supply of defence equipment difficult.

Research limitations/implications – The study’s empirical data and findings are based on the Swedish context. In order to draw more general conclusions in a defence context, the study should be expanded to covermore nations.

Practical implications – The findings will enable the defence industry and the procurement authorizations to better understand the requirements of Armed Forces, and how to cooperate under applicable legal and regulatory requirements.

Originality/value – The paper extends the extant body of academic knowledge of the security of supply into the defence sector. It serves as a first step towards articulating a call for new approaches to collaboration indefence supply chains.
