Leidos is a global leader in scientific, information technology, engineering and technical services. We deliver innovative technology and solutions focused on safeguarding critical capabilities and transformation in frontline services. Our work in the United Kingdom includes addressing some of the most complex problems in defence, healthcare, government, safety and security, and transportation.
In 2015, Leidos was awarded the Logistics Services and Transformation contract from the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD). The 13 year, £6.7bn contract will transform the UK’s Defence supply chain.
Like many top organisations, the MOD is increasingly outsourcing logistics responsibilities to focus on core activities. In doing so, they are able to take advantage of digital innovation that makes it possible to provide mission-critical supplies in a timely manner. Leidos now operates the commodity procurement, storage and distribution functions previously performed by the MOD’s Logistic Commodities and Services Operating Centre.
Since 2015, the Logistics Commodities Services Transformation Programme has delivered over £1bn products to the UK Military using cutting-edge procurement techniques and strong governance. That means getting everything from food rations to boots, exactly where they need to be, at the right price and at the right time. With an effective process for engaging the market, the Programme has driven equal opportunity to all suppliers across the Food, Fuel, Medical, General Supplies and Clothing commodity sectors.
The Programme is implementing digital transformation for one of the world’s most foremost military operations, while generating hundreds of millions in savings for the UK government and taxpayers.
With the experience of Leidos, the UK Armed Forces is now able to leverage best-in-class technology solutions that rival those deployed by leading companies in the private sector.
