    The Small cap article is slightly wrong in that there is no PFI involved in the North Lincs scheme.

    You can find info on Mass here Cohort plc / MASS

    and more on their site here Mass Consultants Ltd

    In March 2007, I discovered that some fascinating written evidence from the Scottish Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (Scottish CND, SCND), submitted to the Select Committee on Defence, had been published on the UK Parliament's official website. It formed part of the Select Committee's Ninth Report of the House of Commons 2006/2007 Session, "The Future of the UK's Strategic Nuclear Deterrent: the White Paper".

    In the SCND evidence, submitted in January 2007, the CCC was described as the place where work on the computer software for Trident submarines is carried out by a major defence contractor called MASS Consultants Limited.

    The acronym MASS was derived from "Mathematical and Associated Scientific Services" and the company was formed in 1983 by former BAe Systems staff. It was bought by the Cohort group in July 2006 for £12.5 million.

    In Cohort's press release at that time, announcing the acquisition, it boasted that MASS Consultants had secured a £43 million ten-year contract in 2000, "to support a highly secure Ministry of Defence Computer Centre".

    It continued, "The scope of work includes systems modelling, IT maintenance and support, operational analysis, software development and team management".

    Maybe Gordon Brown's plan is to get the pupils programming future Trident warhead code! Cost-cutting measure and all that...
