Book Description: Readiness is the term used to describe the means by which the Ministry of Defence holds its military forces at varying levels of preparedness to respond to emerging operations. An effective system for assessing and reporting military readiness is a key part of modern armed forces capability, in order to manage risks and address any deficiencies and plan for the future. This has become increasingly important in recent years given the unpredictable nature of the current security environment. This NAO report finds that the MoD has a good system for reporting the readiness of its armed forces, although there is scope for further improvement, both to better define and measure its Public Service Agreement target for readiness, and to manage the main areas of risk, such as logistic support.

Book Description: The Defence Reform was launched in August 2010 as a fundamental review of how Defence is structured and managed. Many of the issues are not new and have been noted by similar reviews. The Steering Group believes an effective MOD is one which builds on the strengths of the individual Services and the Civil Service and does so within a single Defence framework that ensures the whole is more than the sum of its parts. A key driver for this review has been the Department's over-extended programme, to which the existing departmental management structure and management structure and behaviours contributed. Many of the Steering Group's proposals are designed to help prevent the Department from getting into such a poor financial position in the future and to put it in the position to make real savings. There are 53 recommendations the key ones of which are: to create a new and smaller Defence Board chaired by the Defence Secretary to strengthen top level decision making; to clarify the responsibilities of senior leaders, including the Permanent Secretary and the Chief of the Defence Staff; make the Head Office smaller and more strategic, to make high level balance of investment decisions, set strategic direction and a strong corporate framework; focus the Service Chiefs on running their Services and empower them to perform their role effectively with greater freedom to manage; strengthen financial and performance management throughout the Department to ensure future plans are affordable; create a 4 star led Joint Forces Command; create single, coherent Defence Infrastructure and Defence Business Services organisations; manage and use less senior military and civil personnel more effectively, people staying in post longer, more transparent and joint career management.

Book Description: In 2000, the Ministry of Defence (the Department) began to develop plans to replace existing diverse systems with a single information infrastructure to enable better communication, to promote more efficient ways of working, and to obtain better value for money. In March 2005, the Department let a contract with ATLAS, a consortium with EDS as the prime contractor, for the installation and management of a new infrastructure over 10 years. The Defence Information Infrastructure Programme (DII) will eventually incorporate 150,000 terminals for 300,000 users at over 2,000 defence sites, including on ships and deployed operations. The parts of the Programme which the Department has on contract are estimated to cost £4.9 billion. As with other major IT programmes, DII is intrinsically complex and challenging. In this case, the Programme's size and demanding requirements for security and deployment to theatres of military operations are particularly exacting. It is also challenging to manage in terms of the complex interconnection with other business change programmes and the level of churn in the Department's business, and has had to be introduced into a diverse, and in places poor quality, estate. The Programme reports that it has already achieved or enabled benefits to date of £916 million. But the Programme's implementation difficulties have led to key elements of it running 18 months late. This delay has led to postponement of the achievement of some benefits, particularly the savings associated with switching off legacy systems and the longer term benefits from improved ways of working. The National Audit Office makes recommendations on preparation, implementation, service management and costs.


The Defence Strategy For Acquisition Reform

Book Description: The UK spends approximately £20bn annually on military goods and services, around two-thirds of the total Defence Budge The challenges are constantly evolving, and there has been a succession of reforms to the acquisition process, each building on the last, and between them delivering significant improvement: more recent equipment projects show less tendency towards cost growth and time slippage; there is a more holistic, 'throughlife' approach to providing capability (Chapter 5); and a stronger and more mutually beneficial relationship with industry (Chapter 6). Around 98 per cent of major projects deliver the operational performance needed at the front line. But they also tend to increase in cost - by an average of 2.8 per cent each year - and to suffer delay averaging 5.9 months. More projects must be delivered to cost and time. An independent report into defence acquisition by Bernard Gray (available at: http://www.mod.uk/NR/rdonlyres/78821960-14A0-429E-A90A-FA2A8C292C84/0/ReviewAcquisitionGrayreport.pdf) concluded that overall plans for new equipment were too ambitious, and needed to be scaled down to match the funding likely to be available; and management of equipment portfolios must be improved. This strategy is built around those conclusions. The framework is designed so that the Ministry of Defence will make better decisions about what equipment (and wider services) to buy, how to ensure they are delivered on time, to cost and provide the desired performance; and in doing so, recognise and properly manage all the other strands (training, personnel, information, doctrine, organisation, infrastructure and logistics) needed to deliver and sustain effect on the ground.

Managing Change In The Defence Workforce

Book Description: The Department's approach to reducing its headcount has been largely in accordance with good practice and, up to now, it has acted in a way that is consistent with value for money. However, the urgent need for the Department to cut costs means it is having to cut its headcount in advance of planning in detail how it will operate in the future, thereby risking making current skills shortages worse. The Department plans to cut its civilian workforce by 29,000 and its armed forces by 25,000. To meet these targets, the MOD has started a redundancy programme and a Voluntary Early Release Scheme, both of which run in several tranches. The most recent estimates by the Department are that the process will cost £0.9 billion and produce £4.1 billion in cost reductions (just over £3 billion net). The potential savings fluctuate with the timing of the redundancy tranches (a delay of three months to the second military tranche has reduced savings from this tranche alone by an estimated £100 million to £138 million to 2015). The Department now has to reduce the numbers in the Army by a further 5,000 by 2015 but has not worked out in detail how it will do this. Delays to the process erode the level of potential savings as the Department continues to pay salaries, benefits and contributions to pensions. Without real changes to ways of working, cutting headcount is likely to result in the Department's doing less with fewer people or, alternatively, trying to do the same with greater risk

Recruitment And Retention In The Armed Forces

Book Description: This two volume NAO report examines the recruitment and retention of armed forces personnel. As of July 2006, the trained strength of the armed forces stood at around 180,690, with an estimated shortfall of 5,170 against the Departments requirement. Overall the armed forces are not in manning balance, with the figures masking a wider shortage of trained personnel within a range of specific trade groups across all three services. All three services expect to be within manning balance by April 2008, though historically the services have consistently run below the full manning requirement. The NAO has identified 88 operational pinch point trades where there is insufficient trained strength to perform operational tasks. The report sets out a number of conclusions and recommendations, including: that the Department should review overall manning requirements within individual operational pinch points and also develop guidelines on the expected levels of voluntary outflow for individual operational pinch points; regular surveys of personnel should be carried out, focusing on factors that reduce retention; the Department should also assess the impact of the work/life balance and the extent to which breaches of individual harmony may be understated; further, the Department should look to investigate measures to provide greater stability and certainty of work patterns for personnel between operational deployments; also that a cost effective analysis should be conducted on the payment of financial retention incentives and the impact on decisions to continue serving in the armed forces; the Department should also review the scope of schemes which provide opportunities to offer competitive salaries, and consider the recruitment to a wider range of trades than is currently the practice; the Department should also develop a clear order of priority for the wide range of long-term projects it has planned and commit to firm timescales and funding programmes for the most important. A companion volume (HC 1633-II, session 2005-06, ISBN 0102943575) is available separately which contains case studies and detailed survey results.
