It seems the majority of the UOR's have been a success and the process has been honed to deliver practical capabilities in a short period of time. The process continues although perhaps slowing down a bit for various reasons. What does this mean for continuing acquisition programmes from a practical, political and planning perspective? Have dangerous precedents been set in the eyes of the Treasury? Does it show what can be done in times of need? Has it shown the conventional capability planning process to be deeply flawed? Or does it mean nothing?
