Description: An Environment Agency programme to procure a 10-year asset management programme of flood defence works on the tidal Thames. The proposal is to seek greater efficiencies through innovative ways of working with the supply chain to deliver a more integrated programme of necessary refurbishment and replacement works. This is the first phase of a much longer-term Plan for managing tidal flood risk in London and the Thames Estuary to the year 2100 and beyond. The cost of maintaining and improving these defences is justified by the very high value of assets protected (£200bn of property), with over 1.25million people living and working in the area at risk of flooding.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The Environment Agency has strengthened governance arrangements and procurement skills in the team. Defra SRO and senior Defra officials are engaged in project governance, and IUK and Local Partnerships are supporting the assessment of procurement options and development of the business case. A more recent MPA update concluded that progress had been made on producing a commercial case and revising the management case, but this is still work in progress.
Start date: 2010-04-01
End date: 2024-03-31
Schedule text: Defra expects to receive the Outline Business Case in July for the procurement of a 10-year programme valued at around £260 million for necessary refurbishment and replacement works on the tidal Thames.
Baseline: £35.00m
Forecast: £32.00m
Variance: -8.57%
Variance text: The £3m reduction of forecast spend in 2012/13 compared to the budget is due to a rescheduling of the timetable to develop the business case, and procure the Environment Agency’s capital improvement works programme on the Thames.
Whole Life Cost: £3,082.00m
WLCost text: Having considered the whole life cost of the strategic options in the TE2100 Plan, Defra and the EA are now focusing on costs of discrete packages of works to deliver agreed policy options. The first of these is the programme to procure a 2013-2023 asset management programme valued at around £260 million.
