Baseline: £12.50m
Forecast: £4.50m
Variance: -64.00%
Variance text: As of 25/03/13 The 12/13 budget is now £10m and the forecast is zero. Projected spend in 12/13 is less then originally forecast. The MIP was a highly complex proposal, needing the detailed agreement of the MNOs and Government to allow it to proceed. It took a little longer than we had hoped to reach a position which was acceptable to all. DCMS has agreed a budget re-profile with HMT which has brought the budget profile into line with forecast expenditure.
Whole Life Cost: £154.50m
WLCost text: DCMS funding will cover the capital cost requirements to build the masts. Operating costs will be the responsibility of the supplier.
