Context and History

The Green Box (which ran from 2009 to 2014) was renamed ‘New Green Box’ in 2018. In April 2018, TD-Info initiated a process to create a New Green Box (NGB) as a joint MOD/Industry activity. This stems from the Defence Suppliers Forum (DSF) making a proposal and identifiying Team Defence Information (TD-Info) as the body to facilitate this activity.

(NGB) is a construct whereby Industry is engaged as a stakeholder in the MOD processes for consulting on and assessing the impact of proposed information system changes on their output based contracts as well as NGB assisting MOD to shape significant new requirements. NGB activities are designed to take advantage of the collective ‘Team Defence’ wisdom and experience to inform decisions with aims that include: minimize risk, optimize requirements setting and synergies, reduce costs and improve interoperability, agility and innovation. All these elements contribute to the shared Whole Force goal to enhance operational capabilities for UK defence.
