The Military Assistance to the Civil Authorities (MACA) mechanism has been used by Defence to meet the support requirements of other Departments during COVID-19.

At present, 342 MACAs have been requested in support of Government's domestic COVID-19 response at an estimated total cost of £29.7million. Costs vary according to each task, although marginal costs are the default charging regime when military support is requested.
