German MoD externally reviews nine major procurement programmes

03 July 2014

The German Ministry of Defence (MoD) has contracted an independent commission to conduct a review of the country's nine major defence programmes.

The programmes being assessed are: Eurofighter (tranche 3B); A400M; a successor to the cancelled EuroHawk; Tiger combat helicopter; NH90; Tactical air defence system/MEADS; Puma IFV; Frigate type 125; and Joint forces radio.

The review is being conducted by KPMG, P3 Engineering, and Taylor Wessing. An earlier draft of the programmes to be audited comprised a total of 15 major ongoing procurement programmes, including AESA Radar, AFV Boxer, IFV Puma, K-130 corvette, and the IRIS-T and Meteor missile systems, all of which were dropped from the final list.
