answer text <p>The Army regularly reviews its capabilities in order to assess its future requirements. Its Fire on the Move capability is provided by the world leading Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank for which a range of further upgrades are currently being assessed. In addition to Challenger 2, the introduction of the AJAX vehicle and the Government's upgrade plans for the Warrior Armoured Fighting vehicle will also improve the Army's Fire on the Move capabilities and ensure they remain amongst the best available to any Army.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Ministry of Defence (MOD) Information Systems and Services (ISS) organisation is already implementing the guidance set out by the Government Commercial Function (GCF) in its paper entitled Exiting Major IT Contracts: Guidance for Departments. The ISS strategy seeks to disaggregate requirements into smaller component parts where this is deemed to be value for money, with work on this having started in 2015.</p><p>A multi-disciplinary team has been stood up to oversee the entire portfolio of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) capabilities. This team is tasked with the management of an overarching Portfolio Plan, for the further disaggregation of the large ICT Outsource contracts in Defence. In line with the guidance in the GCF paper, the Portfolio Plan covers multiple years and takes a methodical risk based approach.</p><p>There is a renewed emphasis on early market engagement and ISS has a six-weekly programme of interactions with Industry via its relationship with techUK. The MOD has launched a new Supplier Portal on Defence Contracts Online which will make it easier for suppliers to access a wide range of defence opportunities.</p><p>ISS has a Strategic Workforce Plan that outlines future ISS skills requirements.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
