UK Royal Air Force Air Command
Royal Air Force Air Command holds an annual budget of GBP3 billion within the UK Ministry of Defence.
Tasked with a requirement to reduce its headcount as part of a programme to reduce 32000 civilian roles and 17000 military roles across defence, the management accountants at Air Command delivered a one third reduction (GBP3.8 million) to its central and regional team, and co-led the redesign of the Command’s headquarters and the delivery of more analytical services across the Command.
This was delivered in just 12 months, against a two year target. Colin Evans FCMA, CGMA, deputy command secretary, explains how they did it.
