BFPO - to be closed later this year

#1
Adam Ingram (Minister of State (Armed Forces), Ministry of Defence) | Hansard source

With effect from 1 April 2007, the Defence Procurement Agency (DPA), the British Forces Post Office (BFPO), the Defence Communication Services Agency (DCSA), the Disposal Services Agency (DSA), Defence Estates (DE), the Defence Bills Agency (DBA) and the Duke of York's Royal Military School (DYRMS) will cease to hold agency status. It has also been decided that the Defence Diversification Agency (DDA) should be closed later this year.

Given that many of the reasons for making these organisations agencies are now embedded in the wider department, particularly for those that are also Top Level Budgets, agency status now adds little value.
The article goes on and on about what they are going to get rid of! but you can leave a response!

This does not mean that BFPO will be closed. It means (and in fact your cut & paste above actually says) 'will cease to hold agency status'.

There used to be the 'Defence Dental Agency' (tri-service org) and it lost it's agency status a few years ago. It is now known as the Defence Dental Service and for troops on the ground it has been impossible to spot the difference.

If it means getting rid of self licking lollipop agencies and reduces bureaucracy, it has to be a good thing. I don't think they are doing it for that reason though.


What the Armed Forces do need, is less snivel servants creaming the budget.

And if you had seen the Departmental Review published yesterday you may have reason to feel that that happy day is closer than you may have thought :D

Of course! what we all need, replace snivel servants with contractors! Pay them five times the wages to deliver an over priced solution, that is crap, won't (not meant to) work and is about as cost effective as Emelda Marko's shoe consultant!
