Schedule text As of 25/03/13 The programme is scheduled to be completed by March 2015. Delivery by this date is dependent on resolution of State aid issues and supplier implementation timeframe.
Baseline £10.00m
Forecast £0.00m
Variance -100.00%
Variance text: As of 25/03/13 Spend in 12/13 is less than originally forecast owing to the need to refocus the cities' plans in light of the difficulties in gaining EU State Aid approval. DCMS has agreed a budget re-profile with HMT which has brought the budget profile into line with forecast expenditure.
Whole Life Cost £150.00m
WLCost text: Total costs for building and operating the infrastructure will depend on the model followed by each local project.
