Computer System Architects Awarded Pilot Contract to Monitor  the Quality of User Requirements Under the Auspices of Army HQ Andover

 

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 completed a further contract for the CBRN IPT, in continuation of the work started in 2006, to develop a User Requirement Document for a Minimum Operating Capability  (MOC) for the MoD’s 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 for the Future Core Network (FCN) intended to rationalise and consolidate global communications for the UK Ministry of Defence.  The implementation of the FCN project will ultimately cost in the region of 52B and is the largest communications project ever embarked upon by the MoD.

 

Mid 2007 CSA was awarded a contract to audit and re-engineer the User Requirement Document for a corporate Electronic Document Viewing system for the Defence Logistics Organisation of the UK Ministry of Defence.

 

Early in 2007 CSA was awarded a contract to audit and re-engineer the User Requirement Document for the Digital Diagnostic & Repair project in the Workshop Support Services IPT for the defence Logistics Organisation of the UK Ministry of Defence.  It is intended that this work will be used to develop improvements in the overall quality and coverage of both the URD and the System Requirement Document for the project.

 

Late in 2006 CSA was awarded a series of contracts to develop the User Requirement Document for a project being undertaken to update the capability of the maritime surveillance aircraft NIMROD.

 

In mid 2006 CSA was awarded a contract to capture and develop the User Requirement Document for a project being undertaken by the CBRN IPT at the Defence Procurement Agency that is aimed at providing comprehensive protection for air systems operating in contaminated environments.  The project has adopted a ‘system of systems’ approach to development and it is envisaged that a number of defence related organisations will contribute to the specification work.

 

During 2005 CSA completed a contract for the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) to audit the User Requirement Document for a future Ground Based Air Defence (GBAD) system for the British armed forces.  This work is part of an overall contract, worth in excess of 7B.  The system, together with the requirements engineering work that ISA conducted for the MoD’s Airborne Stand Off Radar (ASTOR) project, is intended to provide the UK military with unique defensive capability.
