30 Jun 05. Urgent Operational Requirements (UOR): Public Accounts Committee (PAC) Report. The PAC published a Report on the MoD covering “the rapid procurement of capability to support Operations”. Approved expenditure on UOR to support Operations in Iraq had been £811m and for Operations in Afghanistan £148m. The PAC considers it “highly regrettable” that only two-thirds of UOR were fully delivered in time for the invasion of Iraq. Comment: The Report will be of interest to those involved with equipment procurement and it is printed together with the evidence taken on 29 Nov 04. The Report is available from TSO and from The Parliamentary Bookshop (Tel: 020-7219 3890), as HC 70, for £10:00. (Source: DNA DEFENCE NEWS ANALYSIS, Issue 05/23, 13 June 05)
