DCA (RAG) Amber
DCA text: The IPA Delivery Confidence Assessment (DCA) rating at Q2 1920 (30th September 2019) was Amber, which has not changed since last year's Q2 1819 Amber, due primarily to the following factors; - The key areas of concern for delivery of Complex Weapons are: technical development; integration and acceptance onto platforms / systems; production (both new products and those weapons going through refurbishment); and financial planning and control (variable funding levels and cost escalations). - Recruitment of DE&S Suitably Qualified and Experienced Personnel (SQEP) resource to assure the outputremains an enduring challenge - The SRO holds no delegation and seeks a £20M per annum delegation. Since the Q2 1920 (30th September 2019) Amber IPA DCA, the following non-project operating environment activities have impacted the original Q2 IPA DCA; - The DCA has not changed since Q2 and remains at AMBER. This is due to the continued impact of the key areas of concern outlined above. Since the Q2 1920 (30th September 2019) Amber IPA DCA, the following primary project actions have impacted the original Q2 IPA DCA; - The DCA has not changed since Q2 and remains at AMBER.
Start date 2008-03-31
End date 2032-04-01
Schedule text The scheduled baseline project end date at Q2 1920 (30th September 2019) is 01/04/32, has not changed since last year's Q2 1819 date of 01/04/32, due primarily to the following factors; - The original Portfolio agreement covered a ten-year period that takes us up to Apr 2020, however this agreement is enduring, therefore we do not face a cliff-edge on the contract at that time or in 2032. Work is now underway through the Complex Weapons strategy to assess what the next 10-15 years of the CWP should be, including innovative commercial models that are more responsive to evolving threats, whilst continuing to deliver on the outputs of the current Portfolio with a greater focus on In-Service Support arrangements
Baseline £755.26m
Forecast £728.75m
Variance -0.04%
Variance text: Budget variance less than 5%
Whole Life Cost £28,717.22m
WLCost text: The baseline Whole Life Cost at Q2 1920 (30th September 2019) is £28,717.22m, has increased by £2682.23m since last year's Q2 1819 (£m) baseline Whole Life Cost of £26,034.99m, due primarily to the following factors; - Qtr. 2 1920 hascaptured cost escalation for Meteor Mid Life Refresh, SPEAR Cap 3 and Aster Mid-Life Refresh which had previously been recorded as Risk Outside Costing. - Planning Analytics went live in August 19 on PB&F and has provided greater tools for manipulating and extracting data from the system. Since the Q2 1920 (30th September 2019) £28,717.22m baseline Whole Life Cost, the following non-project operating environment activities have impacted the original baseline Q2 Whole Life Cost; - Complex Weapons Rebalancing exercise has realigned the forecast to Budget variance profile but has lead to further cost escalation by delaying delivery of production. Since the Q2 1920 (30th September 2019) £28,717.22m baseline Whole Life Cost, the following primary project actions have impacted the original Q2 baseline Whole Life Cost; - Complex Weapons Rebalancing has realigned forecast profile to budget but has resulted in further cost escalation. - Complex Weapons is holding a significant amount of Risk outside costing for FC/ASW and Meteor which are dependant on capability choices and could lead to further cost escalation.
