CAMPAIGNS: Getting the MoD squad together - Internal Communications
The Ministry of Defence’s Procurement Executive (PE) annually
spends around pounds 7 billion on new equipment and spares for the armed
forces. In 1991 ministers decided to bring together over 7,000 staff
from three main areas - London, Bath and the south coast - in a
purpose-built headquarters at Abbey Wood in Bristol. The collocation was
also intended to act as a catalyst for broader changes: job cuts, new
business practices and restructuring.
