Description: The Materiel Strategy Programme seeks to implement transformational change within Defence Equipment & Support (DE&S), the organisation that equips and supports the Armed Forces for current and future operations, in order that it can operate more effectively and efficiently within a simplified and improved Acquisition System. An assessment phase was launched in April 2013 to explore a Government Owned, Contractor Operated (GOCO) option alongside keeping DE&S within the public sector with an improved operating model (DE&S+).
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: Following the withdrawal of one of the GOCO bidders in November 2013, the Defence Secretary announced in December 2013 that the GOCO competition was no longer viable at this stage. Instead, DE&S transformed into a bespoke trading entity on 1 April 2014 as an intermediate stage and embarked on a programme of transformation building on the DE&S+ option, and a competition for Managed Service Providers has been launched. Legislation to provide a framework for a transition to a GOCO in future, if required, has passed all Parliamentary stages.
Start date: 2011-05-02
End date: 2016-04-01
Schedule text: DE&S was established as a bespoke trading entity in April 2014 and plans to transform to be ‘match fit’ by April 2017.
