The timing of MOD investment decisions depends on the maturity of the project. It is not therefore possible to provide a list of projects due to submit initial gate and main gate business cases during the comprehensive spending review 2007 period.

The investment decisions for projects are taken as soon as the necessary work is complete—any date used within the Department is for planning purposes only.
