Simpson Associates accredited with Hellios’ JOSCAR supplier register certification

Simpson Associates is proud to announce their registration on the JOSCAR supplier accreditation register. The JOSCAR collaborative tool by Hellios is a single repository for the defence and security sector, to ensure suppliers are high-quality and make the procurement process more efficient. It offers a single source of truth and a two-stage method for profiling and compliance to minimise risk and maximise efficiency.

This accreditation demonstrates Simpson Associates’ commitment to the industry and technical expertise within the field. Having worked in the Blue Lights sector for multiple years, they are familiar with the procurement process and the associated risks for police and defence organisations. For this reason, they are delighted to be part of the JOSCAR system.

Dave Kerby, Data and AI Solution Lead and Blue Lights Sector Lead, comments:

“We’re really pleased to be JOSCAR certified. It’s a brilliant system which allows the defence industry to go through the procurement process with confidence in risk management and high-quality information.”
