In 2010 the Secretary of State for Defence asked Lord Levene of Portsoken, a former Chief of Defence Procurement, to independently review defence. Lord Levene published his Defence Reform report into the structure and management of the Ministry of Defence (MOD) in June 2011, setting out 53 recommendations.

Lord Levene recommended that each year for 3 years following the publication of his report he produce an independent review of the progress that MOD had made on implementing his recommendations.
