Armed Forces: Procurement

Volume 684: debated on Friday 14 July 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many sections or units of the proposed new merged organisation to cover all military procurement and supplies will be sited in areasof high unemployment or in the north of England.[HL6796]

The organisation of a merged Defence Procurement Agency and Defence Logistics Organisation, proposed in the Enabling Acquisition Change review, will be subject to further detailed work during the implementation planning phase over the coming months. Given the investment already made in the creation of an acquisition hub in the Bristol/Bath area, including the recently announced collocation of DLO and DPA staffs, this location is likely to remain the centre of gravity for the Ministry of Defence acquisition.
