Defence Procurement Procedure (DPP) concentrates on establishing, streamlining and reforming the procurement procedure for the defence sector in order to boost GOI’s ‘Make in India’ initiative. It does this by encouraging indigenous designing, developing and manufacturing defence equipment, systems, platforms and sub-systems.
The ‘Make’ procedure has been polished to have more participation from the Indian industry. One of the central features of DPP has been to augment the role played by MSMEs in this sector. The cornerstones of DPP are reducing the timeframe for different procurement activities and establishing robust mechanisms to check for integrity at the various stages of the procurement process.
