Description

The MOD is conducting Early Market Engagement for a future Light Gun project for Artillery Systems.
Due to the demand on resource, competing priorities, and lack of capacity, the support provided by DE&S alone is no longer fit for purpose, and if it continues in this way the availability of the platform will be affected, as supportability becomes unsustainable.

This project is in early concept and aims to cover the following:
Core activity to include but not limited to

– Provision for advice and assistance requests.
– Maintenance of reference system, excluding LINAPS.
– Quality assurance.
– Obsolescence Management.
– Safety monitoring and input to safety cases, SNvE and ENvE.
– Legislation management, and assessment.
– TLS.
– Technical publication updates.
– Disposal Plan.

Non-Core (costed separate to core)

– PDS tasking shall also be included to allow capability changes, and ad-hoc taskings.
– Modifications design and embodiment.
– Configuration management/legislation compliance

This is a Request for Information to ascertain the Market Capability of meeting this potential requirement, as well as gaining an understanding of Costs.
