Description: To examine and implement the most effective way of closing Rhine Garrison and Munster Station in Germany by: - moving HQ Allied Rapid Reaction Corps (ARRC), 16 Sig Regt and 1 Armoured Division Signal Regiment (ADSR) to the UK; - streamlining the infrastructure delivery management in support of UK Defence personnel based in Germany and the European mainland; - utilising or releasing estate vacated in Germany as a result of Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR) Preliminary Moves (i.e. Celle).
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The move of the two Signal Regiments from Germany to Stafford in Summer 2015 remains on track. Separate contracts to redevelop Beacon Barracks and to build Service Families' Accommodation on MOD-owned land adjacent to the barracks have been awarded and construction work has begun. The amber rating reflects the taut timelines to complete the necessary construction works.
Start date: 2006-08-31
End date: 2019-03-31
Schedule text: In Germany work to close and hand back estate to the Federal authorities has progressed quickly and Munster Station and the Rheindahlen Military Complex were both handed back ahead of schedule. Following the announcement of the Army Basing Plan it has now been decided to advance the move of 102 Logistic Brigade and to bring it within the scope of the Army Basing Programme, which means it has been removed from the BORONA Programme.
Baseline: £117.91m
Forecast: £96.76m
Variance: -17.94%
Variance text: The variance was due to a combination of reduced expenditure in Germany, a reduction in bulk lease costs for the Stafford project and a reduction in manpower requirement for the Innsworth project against the original control total.
Whole Life Cost: £1,609.49m
WLCost text: The figures covered in this publication include an extra ten years, out to the end of the Investment Appraisal, when compared against the 2013 publication to reflect changes we have made to our reporting processes over the past 12 months with 2014 data now reflecting the 25 year Investment Appraisal period. When comparing the whole life costs between 2013 and 2014 like for like, the budget allocation has been reduced to reflect that funding for the move of 102 Logistic Brigade has been removed from the BORONA Programme and responsibility for the move now falls within the Army Basing Programme.
