Defence Equipment and Support


This inquiry will examine the work of Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S), an arm’s length body of the Ministry of Defence (MoD), which manages a range of defence equipment and service purchases for the UK’s armed forces. The Committee will consider the strengths and failings of DE&S’ current approach to defence procurement, and whether there are lessons to be learned.

The Sub-Committee welcomes written submissions from all interested parties. However, the Sub-Committee would be particularly grateful to receive submissions from those with direct experience of working with DE&S itself, whether within MoD and the Armed Forces or the defence supply chain. The Committee normally publishes written evidence that meets parliamentary rules. Please state in your submission if you wish for the Committee to keep it confidential or to anonymise it before publication.
