As a result of the changes to policy and financial plans announced in and around the 2010 Strategic Defence and Security Review, the Department implemented savings of £74 billion over its 10-year programme, as presented in the following table:
|Equipment and equipment support||36.8|
|Reductions in front line military personnel||8.8|
|Non front line reductions (including civilian personnel)||14.6|
|Other running costs and changes in assumptions||12.0|
During the 2013 spending round, the Ministry of Defence committed to £875 million of further operating costs efficiency savings in 2015-16. These savings will be delivered from contract renegotiations, the centralised procurement of common goods and services, pay restraint, and reductions in the cost of the Department's civilian headcount and allowances.
