Support to the New Employment Model
The Ministry of Defence's (MOD) New Employment Model programme is the widest review of personnel related policies in 40 years, covering terms of service, accommodation, training, and pay and allowances. The MOD needed independent, timely, and robust evidence to support key decisions within this programme.
Improving Availability Contracts
Military support contracts have focused on making assets available for use, rather than equipment and manpower. These long-term availability contracts encourage industry to reduce costs but maintain capability. We developed tools to look at factors affecting both asset availability and cash flow to support decision-makers in the MOD and industry.
Capability audit and balance of investment
The Ministry of Defence (MoD) and the Front Line Commands need to define and test alternative future force structures.
