Description: The design, development and manufacture of up to 7 Astute class submarines
DCA (RAG) Amber/Red
DCA text: HMS Artful continues to make good progress on her road to Operational Readiness and Boat 4 (Audacious) remains on-track for launch in Q2 17. Boat 5 is now under a full boat contract and is progressing to schedule. Complex negotiations to secure full boat contracts for Boats 6&7 are on-going and are expected to be complete at the end of Q2 17. Overall affordability remains the programme’s key challenge.
Start date 1997-03-17
End date 2024-03-31
Schedule text The build schedule for Boats 4 and 5 has remained stable throughout 2016. Boat 6 and 7 schedules were subject to delay through late delivery of certain components. The future schedule of delivery will be formally reviewed during the Boat 6-7 approvals process to ensure that it is practically and financially achievable.
Baseline £574.91m
Forecast £529.82m
Variance -8.00%
Variance text: The variance to budget reported in 2016/17 at Q2 was c. £45M below CT. This is predominantly due to a challenge being placed on the project to deliver £35M below CT in this Financial Year. The remaining £10M of variance is due to the fund for the baselining of capabilities being costed against the Astute Class Support project at the time of this report, whereas it should have been against build.
Whole Life Cost £9,869.71m
WLCost text: The budget above reflects the control total issued to the Astute Build Programme. The reduction to the previous report is as a result of delivery of a £40M savings and SEPP efficiencies being banked within FY 15/16.
