Description: The Land Environment Tactical Communication and Information System programme is a military capability and business change programme that will deliver the Land Domain's deployed digital backbone in support of tactical (front line) users in the Army, Royal Marine, RAF Regiment and RAF Deployed Operating Bases. It will be achieved through the ongoing sustainment, evolution or replacement of Communication Information Systems and associated applications to underpin the transition to a Single Information Environment for users across Defence.
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 Programme continues to make headway and is already delivering change, with the achievement on schedule of Full Operating Capability of a major upgrade of the in-service Bowman (BCIP 5.6) in December 2020. The 2020/21 period has also seen the Ministry Of Defences Investment Approval Committee approve business cases for both Project TRINITY (terrestrial broadband network in the field) and Project Dismounted Situational Awareness (end user radios, Information Technology and applications for the infantry). Both projects are now undergoing commercial activity with the marketplace, with a Pre Qualification Questionnaire and a competition for Design Services Partner respectively. In addition, a new pan-Programme Logistics Support Contract with Babcock was let in March 21.

Baseline £247.27m
Forecast £198.21m
Variance -20.00%
Variance text: The budget variance exceeds 5%. This variance was generated primarily by delays to the MORPHEUS Sub-Programme, delays to contract negotiations and approvals delays.
Whole Life Cost £14,351.53m
WLCost text: Compared to financial year 19/20-Q2, the projects Baseline Whole Life Cost increased from £11399.76m to £14351.33m. This is primarily due to the following factors: The main cost driver has been MORPHEUS Sub-Programme which has had a number of significant and material cost increases in this period as the programme matures. Other factors are the 19/20-Q2 Budgeted baseline did not include the full Budget Provision for Year 10 (gap of £410m) which was a result of the timing of CT disaggregation. The programme has also expanded to include a number of projects such as NIOBE and AFV Headsets. The Whole Life Costs assessment has also been impacted by a review of the relevant Out of Service Dates to ensure they adhere to the correct planning assumptions.
