Department of Special Services and Programmes
The history of Army Headquarters Department of Special Services and Programmes (AHQ DSSP) dates back to the Year 2016 when the Offices of the PSO Combat Arms and PSO Logistics Services were created under the Office of the COAS for coordination of NA projects and programmes. The need to harmonise these functions and activities of both offices and streamline their channels of communication led to the establishment of Directorate of Projects and Programmes (DPP) on 28 Nov 16. The DPP was upgraded to a dept status on 2 Jan 18 and subsequently renamed Army Headquarters Department of Projects and Programmes (AHQ DPP). However, AHQ DPP was de-established on 23 Mar 21.
In view of the importance of the functions of the defunct AHQ DPP, AHQ DSSP was established on 10 Jan 22. The new Dept was to perform the responsibilities of the erstwhile AHQ DPP and some additional tasks.
The Department is charged with the following responsibilities:
