SSRO publishes DPS for Ordnance system

The Single Source Regulations Office has published a new Defined Pricing Structure (DPS) template for an Ordnance system, and refreshed its existing DPS templates.

Following its consultation on the Defined Pricing Structure (DPS) in March 2015, the SSRO has been working with industry and the MOD to develop a suite of reporting templates to capture the cost breakdown for a number of different types of defence equipment. The first two DPS templates for a submarine and sea system were published alongside a set of principles on 23 June 2015. We have now published the third template covering an ordnance system. We have also amended the existing submarine and sea system templates to include a section to capture service and maintenance costs associated with these two types of equipment.
