Holding answer received on 22 October 2014

A list of all Ministry of Defence (MOD) Category A, B and C Projects is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.

A list of Category A, B and C Projects for Equipment (including Information, Communications and Technology but excluding Equipment Support Programmes) and Infrastructure is held and is provided in the tables attached. I am, however, withholding a number of project titles for the purpose of safeguarding national security, and that their release would, or would be likely to prejudice the capability, effectiveness or security of the Armed Forces.

Category A, B and C Equipment Projects are defined as those valued in excess of £400 million; between £100 and £400 million; and between £20 and £100 million respectively. The tables contain only those projects at the post Initial Gate/pre-In-Service Date stage.

Infrastructure projects categories A and C are defined as those valued in excess of £100 million; and between £10 and £100 million respectively. There is no Category B for Infrastructure Projects.

Further information on major projects throughout Government, including Defence, can be found in the Cabinet Office Government Major Projects Portfolio.
