Latest headlines from our content partner 'Government Computing'The Ministry of Defence (MoD) plans to introduce a new system to enable full electronic transacting for contracts has seen it have to resort to using paper processes.

The new system, called Contracting, Purchasing and Finance (CP&F) is intended to replace existing MoD purchasing and payment systems including Purchase to Payment (P2P). The aim, the MoD says, is to “provide a single end to end capability which will enable significant improvements for both the MOD and suppliers. Specifically this will enhance both contract visibility and contract management processes.”

But the MoD is behind schedule with the move, and the new CP&F system is not now planned to be available to users until December 5.  Originally, the system was scheduled to go live on November 18.
