BMT is proud to be part of a team selected for a Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) CEO Commendation. Awarded annually, CEO Commendations recognise DE&S individuals and teams who have made an outstanding contribution to defence.
The Strategic Development Team – comprising DE&S personnel, industrial representatives from Babcock and BAE Systems, CACI and BMT – has been recognised for its role in achieving Full Operating Capability for the Common Support Model. This is the framework that provides comprehensive support across the Royal Navy’s fleet of existing, new and future warships. The Common Support Model has been designed to ensure that support to the maintainer at sea is at the heart of the support solution and there is clarity over responsibility for every element of ship support. It uses common repeatable processes to provide a sustainable long-term solution and ensure that the approach is scalable to meet the changing demands of the Royal Navy. The Common Support Model ensures the capability, safety and overall availability of warships is increased.
Commodore Martyn Williams, Head of Warship Support at DE&S, commented:
“The Strategic Development Team has delivered significantly increased benefit to our operational platforms and those underdoing deep maintenance. A DE&S CEO Commendation is an achievement of which the team can be justifiably proud.”
As part of the embedded Strategic Development Team, which sits within DE&S’ Naval Ships Support, BMT’s project managers, engineers, training consultants, logistics specialists and cost modellers have been involved with the Common Support Model programme since its inception.
Simon Gould, Managing Director at BMT, commented:
“This commendation is testament to the Strategic Development Team’s fantastic achievements over the last six years. Our role in the Common Support Model exemplifies what BMT does best – acting as a trusted advisor on highly complex programmes by applying the full breadth of our technical expertise and domain knowledge. My congratulations to everyone involved.”
The focus of the Common Support Model programme has now moved into Sustainment and Improvement. Through delivery of high-value services to the MOD, and as their Engineering Delivery Partner (EDP) via the Aurora Engineering Partnership, BMT is now involved in ensuring the full benefits can be realised across the Complex Warship Support Enterprise.
