Defence Business Services

Defence Business Services (DBS) is one of the largest ‘Shared Services Centres’ in Europe and was initially set up to deliver Corporate HR, Payroll, Finance, Vetting and Information Services across the Ministry of Defence (MOD). The creation of DBS was a result of Lord Levene’s Defence Reform Report published in 2011 and the Grimstone review within Defence. DBS's aim was to deliver Corporate Services across MOD more efficiently.

DBS is an organisation within the UK Government's Ministry of Defence and is responsible for providing high quality and professional corporate services to the department. It was established on 4 July 2011 by bringing together several MOD executive agencies, later supplemented by a further merger with the Service Personnel and Veterans Agency, into the following ‘Pillars’ within DBS.
