BAE Systems CORDA to provide policy analysis to UK MoD

4th June 2020 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


BAE Systems CORDA is providing analysis on strategy, policy and investment challenges to the UK MoD, under a £350 million ($439 million) contract from Dstl.

The Analysis for Science and Technology Research in Defence (ASTRID) contract aims to ensure that the MoD will get the best value for money.

Any research may also be repurposed to help the UK government face similar challenges in areas other than defence.

ASTRID began in April 2020 and runs until April 2025, with the possibility of options for a further two years. It replaces the existing Analysis Support Construct framework which was managed by BAE Systems CORDA on behalf of Dstl.

Rob Solly, Dstl divisional head, said: ‘The ASTRID contract will maintain the provision of high-quality analysis to underpin decisions across MoD and our partners in wider government… We also aim to progressively and significantly exceed the MoD target of awarding 25% of work to SMEs.’
