Detail of outcome
The MOD will consider Lord Currie’s report and the results of the public consultation. This will be followed by further engagement with industry and wider stakeholders on which aspects of the independent report to take forward.
Detail of feedback received
The general theme emerging from the public consultation was the need to provide further definition of all Lord Currie’s recommendations and the desire to involve industry and wider stakeholders in more detailed discussion on any proposed changes to existing arrangements.
On 26 January 2011 Minister for Defence Equipment, Support and Technology (Min(DEST)) asked Lord Currie of Marylebone to produce an independent report into single source pricing regulations. Lord Currie delivered his report on 10 October 2011 and within this context the government undertook a 17 week public consultation.
