Description: The Whole Fleet Management (WFM) is a tri-Service programme that delivers the ground based fleet of Defence vehicles in the most efficient way to meet the requirement for operations, training and support. The programme has four main components. Fleet Management allocates vehicles to fleets and activity in order to meet the requirement with the smallest number of vehicles possible. This is enabled by the remaining three components. Controlled Humidity Environment (CHE) storage provides a storage regime that minimizes the requirement for maintenance and is used to store the sustainment fleet a large part of the deployable operational fleet. The Data Recording Analysis and Corrective Action System (DRACAS) is used to reduce maintenance costs and improve availability across the whole. The Joint Asset Management and Engineering System (JAMES) is a management information system that provides global visibility of the location and state of fleet and enables the other three components.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The Fleet Management performance of WFM is on track and its associated methodology has delivered the fleet mix that is being used to equip the new Army 2020 structure. The programme will not deliver the benefits that it forecast in 2008 mainly due to the reduction in size of the Armed Forces and partly due to an over-optimistic estimate of maintenance benefits and a lack of evidence in some areas. The benefits will be re-baselined in the first quarter of FY 14/15.
Start date: 2001-01-31
End date: 2025-06-30
Schedule text: The current delivery of Fleet Management and JAMES are on track. DRACAS is delivering benefits, but at a lower level than originally planned. The number of vehicles that are required to be stored in CHE has reduced due to the reduction in the size of the Armed Forces. The existing CHE also needs to be relocated due to changes in Army basing.
Baseline: £57.29m
Forecast: £32.23m
Variance: -43.74%
Variance text: The variance is due to the reduced requirement to build and operate additional CHE storage due to a reduction in the requirement for additional storage and other reductions in the scale of WFM related activity because of the reduced size of the Armed Forces.
Whole Life Cost: £1,448.56m
WLCost text: Once the plan for the re-location of existing storage is known at the end of 2014, including the attribution of costs to the programme, it is expected that the budgeted whole life costs will reduce.
