There is a further NRP requirement to provide as much convergence of capability across the Fleet and to reduce Defence Lines of Development (DLoD) expenditure. This is a key driver in the maritime domain. The NRP project seeks to ensure as much commonality in spares, HMI and operator/maintainer experience between the I Band and the E/F Band radars.

From 2.4.2014 the Government is introducing its new Government Security Classifications Policy (GSC) to replace the current Government Protective Marking Scheme. A key aspect of this is the reduction in the number of security classifications used. All suppliers to the Department are encouraged to make themselves aware of the changes as it may impact on this Requirement. The link below to the www.gov.uk web site provides information on the new GSC.
The Authority reserves the right to amend any condition related to security of information to reflect any changes in national law or government policy. If any contract documents are accompanied by instructions on safeguarding classified information (e.g. a Security Aspects Letter), the Authority reserves the right to amend the terms of these instructions to reflect any changes in national law or government policy, whether in respect of the applicable protective marking scheme, specific protective markings given, the aspects to which any protective marking applies, or otherwise.
