As promised, a thread to put together thoughts on the DE&S privatisation outlined in the Defence Reform Bill 2013/14. To date there have been a few threads (here, here and here) on the site about this which I've raided to get the following thoughts: [OldSnowy] How will a privatised company have the right culture/take direction to support military priorities? [Without Commitment] Surely the extra management staff will increase costs? [BrunoNoMedals] How broken is the current system? Is it just an issue with big/high profile projects? Feel free to add to the list!
