The priority for Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) is the safe provision of world-class procurement and support to the Armed Forces. The DE&S performance management system, which is designed to enable the organisation to recruit and retain the specialist skills it needs, is just one element that contributes to delivery performance. This performance is measured through an integrated set of key performance indicators (KPI), progress against which is published in the DE&S Annual Report and Accounts. KPI 1 reflects delivery performance to the Armed Forces, and this shows that DE&S continues to achieve or exceed its targets.
