Intellectual Property strategies will be the responsibility of the Senior Responsible Owner (SRO) for each project and will be designed to meet the needs of the overall Acquisition Strategy for that project. The SRO will however take advice from Commercial and Technical Staff on the project requirements, and from the intellectual property specialists in the Defence Intellectual Property Rights team when constructing their IP Strategy. The IP strategy will also form part of the business case that is ultimately subject to approval by MOD's Investment Approvals Committee.
