Description: To improve the efficiency and effectiveness of corporate service delivery in the MOD, through the creation of a Defence Business Services (DBS) organisation and strengthening the role of relevant process owners, in line with best practice. This has included the appointment of a contractor to manage DBS. The programme arose out of the report on "Civilians in Defence' commissioned by the Secretary of State in January 2010 and submitted by Mr Gerry Grimstone in July 2010. The corporate services in scope include civilian HR, finance, information services, vetting, audit, commercial and military HR.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Green
DCA text: The Amber/Green rating reflects challenges surrounding benefits management and to a lesser extent programme governance and resourcing, all of which are being addressed.
Start date: 2010-07-02
End date: 2016-12-01
Schedule text: Projects to transform Defence Business Services (DBS), including its integration with the Service Personnel & Veterans Agency (SPVA) are proceeding to schedule, with completion expected in April 2014. These projects, with the implementation of an intelligent customer capability in the same timeframe, will mean that delivery against the original programme objectives is expected in mid 2014, two years before planned programme closure. Key to this early programme graduation will be the successful confirmation of financial benefits.
