Through-life support happens over the lifetime of materiel and, inevitably, accounts for a major tranche of the MOD’s budget. MOD and Industry are working on innovations, agility and efficiencies in support that together maximise operational effectiveness and value for money.

Support within the MOD is undergoing transformational change and Industry, as part of Team Defence, is integral to that. Our annual SCS19 event – jointly organised by MOD and TD-info – is themed around Industry and the MOD working together for success.
