Defence Training Review

Volume 455: debated on Wednesday 24 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what risks he expects to be transferred to the private sector as part of the Defence Training Review. (116125)

As with other PFI projects, the Defence Training Review (DTR) Contractor will take responsibility for the standard risks associated with a PFI project such as performance and cost risks including: design; construction and whole-life maintenance; non-discriminatory change in the law; town and country planning; commissioning and certification; and loss or damage to assets. In addition and by virtue of the training-specific nature of the DTR programme, risks relating to training will also be transferred. For example the contractor will be paid on the basis of student throughput and against pre-agreed target pass rates for courses.
