Architects Awarded Pilot Contract to Monitor the Quality of User Requirements Under the Auspices of Army
Following detailed discussions
at Director General level during 2012/2013, CSA was awarded a contract by Army
HQ to evaluate the quality of the User Requirements Document for an Army
Battlefield Support Vehicle. This
task was intended as a precursor to introducing the G-MARC methodology to
control the quality of all such specifications.
The Ministry of
Defence’s CBRN team based at Abbey Wood, Bristol, awarded CSA a further
contract during 2011 to continue the development of User Requirements.
During 2010 CSA

APED (Aircrew Protection Equipment and Detection) project.
Because of its peerless
reputation for producing high quality specifications, CSA was awarded a
contract for the period 2008 - 2009 to develop the User Requirement Document
