Description: The Defra UnITy Programme has been established to exploit the opportunity presented from the expiry of its two largest ICT contracts. The programme will run until 10/2018 to develop a delivery mechanism leveraging good outcomes in a multi vendor environment. Since aspects of implementation and transition will still be ongoing at that stage, Defra will consider whether to extend programme with a smaller defined scope or to manage via BAU teams.
