DCA text: Since September 2013 the rebaselining of the Programme, and a re-worked schedule, has been agreed between MOD and the Aircraft Carrier Alliance (ACA). The Secretary of State announced agreement of the new contract in the House of Commons on 6 November 2013 and confirmed it was based on a detailed analysis of costs. Following the announcement, the ACA have undertaken a comprehensive review and re-organisation of their management structure in order to improve governance and delivery performance. The new contractual arrangements will deliver improved commercial terms that provide stronger incentives for the shipbuilding industry to construct the ships to the agreed budget.
