The tasks of the Materiel and IT Command
The Materiel and IT Command ensures that military personnel have modern, robust and safe materiel to work with. The organisation is involved in the procurement, maintenance and sale of materiel.
Procurement and sale
The Materiel and IT Command maintains Defence materiel throughout its entire life-cycle, from purchase via sustainment to disposal, whether ships, aircraft, helicopters, vehicles, fuel, ammunition, clothing, computer systems or weapons are involved.
The Materiel and IT Command devotes a great deal of attention to technological innovation. In cooperation with research institutes and industry, the command is continuously looking for improvements in technology and materials.
Services responsible for logistics
After procurement, the Materiel and IT Command hands over the purchased materiel to the relevant armed forces Service, which is then responsible for its sustainment. The logistics divisions of the Service then ensure maintenance and further distribution of the materiel.
