DCA (RAG) Amber
DCA text: Compared to financial year 19/20-Q2, the Infrastructure Project Authority's Delivery Confidence Assessment rating remained at Amber. This is primarily due to the following factors: The Senior Responsible Owner's current Delivery Confidence Assessment is Amber. The Senior Responsible Owner considers availability (the provision of aircraft ready to be tasked and flown) to be the most important indicator of Programme health. This has increased steadily over the last 12 months under the continued watch of the Joint Venture Steering Group. The Programme still suffers from periods of downturn, is able to react and recover when they occur. The need for continued close attention drives the Amber assessment but there are no long-term concerns. More specifically on Capability Delivery Confidence, new milestones are coming along with increasing confidence of success. Natural Surface Operations graduated to the front line in April 21; Freefall Para trials are underway. The first Tactical Course is planned to finish in September, which will culminate the graduation of further elements of Tactical Capability at the end of the year.
