Command and control system project study


JOINT COMMAND AND CONTROL SYSTEM PROJECT DEFINITION STUDY

The Ministry of Defence have announced Booz Allen Hamilton (Australia) Limited as the ‘preferred tenderer’ to undertake a Project Definition Study for the New Zealand Defence Force’s Joint Command and Control System.

The Joint Command and Control System will provide the means by which commanders at strategic, operational and tactical levels execute command and control of New Zealand Defence Forces singly, jointly, within a combined force, and within a coalition environment. It will ensure a sustainable command and control interoperability framework, including relevant non-defence organisations.

The Joint Command and Control System is currently designated a “Major IT Project” under the terms of the Government’s “Major IT Projects” management framework.

The Project Definition Study will investigate, provide advice and options, and make recommendations on how to best deliver, establish and sustain a cost effective, fit for purpose Joint Command and Control System to meet the New Zealand Defence Force’s command and control, and interoperability needs.

The Ministry of Defence received a large number of responses to an Invitation-to-Register for the Project Definition Study advertised earlier this year.

The preferred tenderer, Booz Allen Hamilton, is an established provider of independent management and technology services to public and private sector organisations worldwide. They have significant experience of defence project definition studies and military command and control systems. The New Zealand project definition study would be resourced by Booz Allen Hamilton from Australia, the United States of America, and New Zealand.

Far more important than the implications for the Economy Gods ( is the dollar up or down? ) last night’s outcome will also mean many, many vulnerable New Zealanders will have a better life over the next three years at least.

Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country..>>>More
