A key driver for this review has been the Department’s over-extended programme, to which the existing departmental management structure and behaviours contributed. Many of our proposals are designed to help prevent the Department from getting into such a poor financial position in the future, and to put it in the position to make real savings. This is not a distraction from providing the military capability the country needs; it is an essential enabler to it. Ultimately, an over-heated programme simply leads to deeper and less coherent cuts.
