SPISN C2IS Industry Day – 3/4 Feb 20


SPISN C2IS Industry Day – 3/4 Feb 20

Aim: The aim of the event is to provide Industry with the opportunity to engage with MOD regarding the provision of a hybrid mix of in-sourced and out-sourced service management models for C2IS, and the resulting business benefits and impacts.

Context: There is an opportunity to improve the current in-house service management arrangements of a complete Command, Control and Information System for a specialist user by increasing the number and type of services that can be outsourced, while retaining the necessary agility for the rapid change demanded of the system. A fully out-sourced (Thick Prime) model is not required so a hybrid approach (mix of in and out-sourcing) is being considered.

The MOD intends to compete for continued service management support from Apr 2021, possibly under an optimised hybrid model, subject to understanding the impact and gaining the required approvals.  The MOD is keen to hear Industry’s views and experience of;

  • this type of project and what has been successful
  • innovation – how your business would look to offer solutions for this project
  • what business changes were required
  • how service management boundaries are managed
  • your commercial solution
  • any issues arising from providing support in a hybrid model

Format: The event will start at 09:30 with background and contextual presentations, followed by an open Q&A session. Attendees should be in the presentation venue by 09:00 for registration and coffee, to allow a prompt start at 09:30.

The presentations and Q&A will continue until lunchtime with one-to-one meetings with MOD project and commercial staff available on a first come first served basis during the afternoon of 3 Feb 20, with a fallback plan to continue the one-to-ones on 4 Feb 20 at the same venue if there is significant demand. Non-commercially sensitive information shared during the one-to-ones will be disseminated via email to all companies in attendance.
