Information on the nationality of suppliers is not routinely held centrally.

However, figures for contracts won by firms with UK addresses were set out in HMG's Balance of Competences Service review in the summer of 2014:

This showed that UK firms won more than 95% of UK contracts advertised EU-wide, either by number or value.
