MOD Publishes Defence Equipment Plan 2018 - 2028
The MOD published (5 November 2018) its 10 year Defence Equipment Plan (2018-2028) and the National Audit Office published a report on this this plan. Both are available for download and we provide a link to a summary of both documents produced by techUK
The techUK website states, "On 5 November, the MOD published its 10 year Defence Equipment Plan covering 2018 – 2028. The annual publication reassesses the spending associated with the equipment budget and examines how costs have risen or fallen against the major Defence programmes run by the department." The piece goes on to summarise the Plan.
It also highlights the "National Audit Office (NAO) report on the MOD’s Equipment Plan, which assesses the robustness of the Ministry of Defence's (MOD) financial data and assumptions for its Equipment Plan 2018-2028" and techUK provides a summary of that too.
Fred Sugden, Head of Defence Programme, techUK said: "...To realise the benefits of new technologies, the MOD needs to work with partners in industry to deliver genuine digital transformation’"
