Description: T26 Single Statement of User Need is to deliver: An interoperable, survivable, available and adaptable capability that is operable globally within the maritime Battle Space to contribute to sea control for the Joint Force and contribute to maritime force protection with the flexibility to operate across and within the range and scale of operations. Current planning assumption is that 13 T26 GCS will be procured in order to replace the T23 Frigates on a 1 for 1 basis. Joint Assessment Phase Mission is to develop and cost an affordable T26 solution and in-service support model that meets the capability requirements, with the evidence to achieve MOD and corporate approvals, enabling the successful transition of the programme to the Design, Manufacturing and Support phase in 2014.
DCA (RAG): Exempt FOI
DCA text: A recent review affirmed that successful delivery of T26 GCS appeared feasible but significant issues existed which required management attention. The Review resulted in a number of recommendations which are in the process of being implemented at Programme and Project level. The overall assessment was that the issues should be resolvable at this stage of the programme and if addressed promptly, should not present a cost/schedule overrun.
Start date: 2008-07-21
End date: None
Schedule text: T26 remains in its Assessment Phase, maturing the design and driving down costs ahead of the main investment decision towards the end of 2014. The Project remains on track to replace the T23 Frigates as soon as possible after 2020.
Baseline: £87.35m
Forecast: £82.42m
Variance: -5.64%
Variance text: The in-year variance was due to lower than anticipated cost for engaging with current equipment suppliers to pass information to BAE and a slow build up of the industry project team.
Whole Life Cost: £0.00m
WLCost text: T26 is being designed to cost within the overall budgeted cost.
