Army Headquarters has agreed on a contract worth over £5 million with Civica for support in strengthening its digital capabilities.

They are establishing core teams for two workstreams to run until March 2026. The first involves a team of six including architects for data, security, business, information, applications and SMEs to be embedded with Army HQ with the primary objective of setting up the Civica Enterprise Architecture Support Programme (EASP) core team one.

They will initiate a sprint to define the architecture principles, governance model and roadmap, providing a foundation for future initiatives.

The second involves core team two of six additional multi-skilled members to work on specified sprints to deliver the EASP architecture principles, a governance model, roadmap and other tasks identified by the Information Data Authority. This will use best practice from various Ministry of Defence programmes.

“This contract represents a significant investment in enhancing our Architecture Service Operating Model, driving architecture exploitation and coherence across the organisation, enabling us to better deliver capability and exploitation of data and technology supporting our personnel and operational intent.”
