answer text <p>Prior to the introduction of an electronic based HR system in 2006, departmental records on the detail of secondments were paper based. To identify anyone seconded to IMS would involve searching thousands of records and therefore the information could be provided only at disproportionate cost. IMS Ltd records do not show any secondees from the Ministry of Defence.</p> more like this

This allows our Armed Forces to secure the best equipment from an open, global marketplace to meet evolving threats. We also recognise, however, that defence procurement needs to protect UK freedom of action and operational advantage. These strategic considerations shape our procurement strategies. Our refreshed Industrial Policy sets out the basis on which we will develop specific sector approaches to protect national security.</p><p> </p><p>There is no single MOD procurement scorecard. Once we have launched a commercial competition, the MOD considers a wide range of factors when awarding our contracts to obtain the best value for money outcome for defence and the taxpayer.</p>
