This paper describes the UK defense equipment market and the procurement problem. There are sections on the economic theory of procurement, contracting, regulation and competition. The conclusion evaluates UK defence procurement policy and assesses some of the policy issues for the 1990s. Copyright 1996 by Oxford University Press.
