The Ministry of Defence has awarded LogicaCMG a £3.1m training contract to improve the IT procurement skills in the MOD.

LogicaCMG, through the MOD’s DaLearning training centre, will design, develop and deliver a blended learning programme for four of the MOD’s “functional competence” areas.

These areas are project and programme management, commercial practice, integrated logistics support, and through life capability management.

The programme builds on the existing ten year training provision relationship between LogicaCMG and the MOD, and is expected to be completed in March 2008.

The training programme will be designed and developed by a team of LogicaCMG staff from both the UK and Bangalore, India. The offshore team will contribute to the eLearning components of the blended training.

Sir Ian Andrews, second permanent under secretary for the MoD, said, “This upskilling programme is of central importance - we need to ensure that our people have the right skills to continue to improve the way we do acquisition.”

The Commons public accounts committee recently slammed the MOD for the way it specified and planned the delayed roll-out of battlefield radio systems.
