Description: The programme seeks to design, orchestrate and implement change in Head Office and the Commands in order to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the Defence Acquisition System. This will be achieved by establishing the framework and protocols for the overall Acquisition System within the context of the Defence Operating Model; putting in place the governance and performance management arrangements through which Defence Equipment & Support (DE&S) will be held to account as a Bespoke Central Government Trading Entity; creating a more disciplined interface between DE&S and its Customers; and strengthening the capability of the Commands to operate effectively in the Customer role.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The Project Assessment Review in July 2014 reinforced the need to continue the reforms following the completion of the Customer Design mandate in April 2015, and re-confirmed the original objectives were broadly on track. To ensure that the implementation of reforms continued post April 2015, the September Acquisition Architecture Board, which oversees the work of Customer Design and is chaired by PUS, considered and approved plans for Director General (DG) Head Office & Commissioning Services, in his role as the Defence Authority for the Acquisition System and supported by the Acquisition System Authority, to manage and monitor the ongoing work.
