Modifying Defence Equipment - A report by the Public Accounts Committee

It is important to appreciate the target audience (an Aircraft Integrated Project Team Leader and the Deputy Chief Executive) would fully understand (or be expected to understand) the subjects under discussion, primarily Post Design Services, are fundamental pre-requisites to a valid and verifiable Safety Case and, hence, an airworthy aircraft.
It was when giving evidence to this committee that the Chief of Defence Procurement, Sir Robert Walmsley, agreed the headline failings noted in the 1992 CHART report remained extant.
