The BORONA Programme Team (BPT) was tasked with moving the Headquarters of the NATO Allied Rapid Reaction Corps (HQ ARRC) and its intimate supporting elements, two signal regiments and elements of 102 Logistic Brigade (102 Log Bde) from Germany to the UK.
The BPT is also responsible for moving a number of units and agencies from Rhine Garrison and Münster Station to other locations within Germany so that Rhine Garrison, Münster Station and Celle Station can be closed and handed back to the German Federal authorities.
The BPT was also tasked with streamlining the administration of support provided to UK Defence units and personnel based in Germany and the European mainland and to scope the potential for wider integration of services and support to units based overseas.
There are five discrete projects within the Programme, which when complete, will deliver the objectives:
To deliver operational capability in a more effective and efficient way, enabling a more coherent basing arrangement for the Army and to make better use of the MOD Estate in the UK.
Although BORONA pre-dates the 2010 Strategic Defence and Security Review(SDSR) it is consistent with the SDSR's aim of relocating all military personnel from Germany to the UK by 2020.
