Future Maritime Support Programme
MOD has successfully completed the procurement of the Future Maritime Support Programme (FMSP). This £5bn programme is critical in enabling the Navy to fulfil its pivotal role protecting and projecting Global Britain, because it enables the private sector to make sure the Navy’s ships and submarines are up to date and working properly. This market is complex, has high barriers to entry, and has over time become monopolised; and yet not only does FMSP provide £600m of savings to the taxpayer, it has introduced new entrants to the market and set the foundation for increased competition going forward.
