The MOD currently pays approximately £50 million per year for its spectrum use.
In line with Government policy and resource accounting principles, the level of future fees will be dependent upon the level of the MOD’s spectrum use at that time. The MOD will consult shortly on the management and marketing of the UK Defence spectrum.
The Department's planned budgetary allocations for 2009-10 and 2010-11, disaggregated by top level budget, will be published in the MOD's Departmental Plan in June 2008.
The timing of MOD investment decisions depends on the maturity of the project. It is not therefore possible to provide a list of projects for the 2008-09 financial year.
Investment decisions for projects are taken as soon as the necessary work is complete.
