30 Sep 08. The Defence Committee is undertaking an inquiry to examine the Ministry of Defence’s performance against its 2004 Public Sector Agreement (PSA) targets, which include targets covering military readiness, the recruitment and retention of Service personnel, and efficiency savings. The MoD’s final assessment of its performance against the 2004 targets is set out in the MoD’s Annual Report and Accounts 2007-08. The Committee will also be examining the new targets established for the Department for the next four years, as well as other expenditure and performance issues.
The Committee would welcome written evidence to the inquiry. This should be sent to the Clerk of the Defence Committee by Friday 24 October 2008.
