  • Advice For Governments and Military
  • The value of Military Vehicles/vessels can be increased for sale if the vehicle(s) have been comprehensively audited.
  • Do not buy used military vehicles/vessels for your Military application unless they have been independently audited.
  • New Military vehicles/vessels that have been extensively modified for you should always be subjected to a complete independent audit and inspection.
  • I advise not to take delivery of any military vehicle/vessel new or used until they have been audited and fully inspected.
  • An audit will ensure supply chain and cost control as well as ‘storage care’.
  • An inspection of the spare parts and the vehicle/vessel supplied will ensure condition and field reliability, fit for purpose and ‘ready to go.
  • The same can be said for Emergency and Security Service Vehicles/Vessels.
  • Military and Emergency Vehicles that are kept stored until needed should be maintained and kept to a maintenance standard which includes scheduled procedures to ensure that the vehicle or vessel is not damaged by being incorrectly stored.
  • It is important to store vessels in such a way that long-term damage does not occur.
  • Military and Emergency Vehicles/Vessels/Motorcycles that are no longer required have many applications. An audit will provide you with a list of options that will reduce the cost of dispersal and may even create a new revenue stream for you.
  • Partnership Options should be considered with Private Industry when specifying a new design. The possibility of a new revenue stream can exist for commercial sales developed from a Military specification.
  • Conseils: La valeur des véhicules / navires militaires peut être augmentée à la vente si le (s) véhicule (s) ont été audités de manière approfondie.
  • N’achetez pas de véhicules / navires militaires d’occasion pour votre application militaire, sauf s’ils ont été audités de manière indépendante.
  • Les nouveaux véhicules / navires militaires qui ont été largement modifiés pour vous doivent toujours être soumis à un audit et à une inspection indépendants et complets.
  • Je conseille de ne pas prendre livraison de tout véhicule / navire militaire neuf ou d’occasion tant qu’il n’aura pas été audité et entièrement inspecté. Un audit garantira la chaîne d’approvisionnement et le contrôle des coûts ainsi que les «soins de stockage».
  • Une inspection des pièces de rechange et du véhicule / navire fourni garantira l’état et la fiabilité sur le terrain, adaptée à l’usage et «prête à l’emploi».
  • Il en va de même pour les véhicules / navires des services d’urgence et de sécurité.
  • Les véhicules militaires et d’urgence qui sont entreposés jusqu’à ce qu’ils soient nécessaires devraient être entretenus et conformes à une norme d’entretien qui comprend des procédures planifiées pour garantir que le véhicule ou le navire n’est pas endommagé par un entreposage incorrect.
  • Il est important de stocker les navires de manière à éviter les dommages à long terme.
  • Les véhicules militaires et d’urgence qui ne sont plus nécessaires ont de nombreuses applications. Un audit vous fournira une liste d’options qui réduiront le coût de la dispersion et peuvent même créer une nouvelle source de revenus pour vous.
  • Les options de partenariat doivent être envisagées avec l’industrie privée lors de la spécification d’une nouvelle conception. La possibilité d’une nouvelle source de revenus peut exister pour les ventes commerciales développées à partir d’une spécification militaire.

My Bachelor of Arts Degree specialises in Systems Management. Should your vehicle(s) or Vessel(s) Maintenance System for Fleet Private, Commercial and Military maintenance systems not be operating to their optimum I am able to carry a System Analysis of the ‘environment’ they operate within to ensure your vehicle and or vessels are kept to peak readiness and reliability.
