Lord Mendelsohn – 2014 Parliamentary Question to the Ministry of Defence

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Lord Mendelsohn on 2014-03-25.

To ask Her Majesty’s Government what is the percentage cost over-run established by the management board for any budget in the Ministry of Defence to merit being tabled at the departmental management board; and how many times in the last 12 months that has occurred.

Lord Astor of Hever

The Defence Board receives a monthly report on the performance of each of its Top level Budgets showing the forecast position against the allocated budget. It also receives information on the delivery of the Ministry of Defence’s key equipment and other projects. The Board assesses this management information at each meeting and takes action as and when necessary.
