§ 24. Mr. Rapson
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if there will be a full audit of the new business scheme at present being used by the Naval Air Repair Organisation prior to the organisation being integrated into the new Defence Aviation Repair Agency. 
§ Mr. Spellar
There are no plans for the audit of the business scheme used by the Naval Aircraft Repair Organisation to take place before the vesting of the Defence Aviation Repair Agency scheduled for 1 April 1999. The new system is operational but the project cannot be closed until the outstanding mandatory requirement for year 2000 compliancy is met. Firm plans are in place to achieve compliancy by February 1999.
A post-project evaluation will take place in the latter half of 1999, within six months of project completion.
