Transparency International UK's Defence and Security Programme (Tl-DSP) partnered with the International Defense Acquisition Resource Management (IDARM) Program of the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School to explore trends in the award of non-competitive or single-source contracts. Data from 45 countries around the world and from the European Defence Agency was requested, and a detailed examaination of both qualitative and quantitative defence procurement data from those countries that responded are included in this report.
