The efficiency programme set out in the 2010 spending review began at the start of the current financial year. The previous financial year was covered by the value for money programme that saved £2.8 billion over the years covered by the 2007 comprehensive spending review.

The Ministry of Defence is committed to realise £3.2 billion in efficiencies over the spending review period. Detailed analysis of our performance against these measures will be reported annually, after the departmental accounts have been audited.
