Description: The aims and scope of the programme were set out in the Ministerial announcement of March 2013. The programme is to coordinate and deliver infrastructure, and non-infrastructure requirements to realise the capability and financial benefits: enable the A2020 organisational structure and UK laydown to be achieved, withdrawing the Army from Germany and delivering reduced costs.
DCA (RAG): Red
DCA text: The Major Projects Authority (MPA) review of the Programme in September 2014 raised significant concerns about the programme - including resourcing, governance and planning - and made a series of recommendations. However the review also noted their optimism about the ability of the new leadership team to turn around the programme and its return to stability. Since then very significant progress has been made to return the programme to a point where it should, with appropriate actions, be successful against the original vision and objectives. An action plan has been developed and taken forward to address all the recommendations made by the MPA Review Team, alongside wider programme delivery. Dedicated resources on the programme have doubled since 2014/15 Q2, with all senior leaders recruited now in post, established and delivering. Plans continue for each project and a "single version of the truth" for all key Programme Information is being refined and used widely. The MPA have recognised the strong leadership and positive progress since the arrival of the new leadership team.

Schedule text: In 2014 the Army Basing Programme (ABP) has seen 30 Units move and/or re-role in the UK, plus one unit move from Germany to the UK, in line with plans. This has created the conditions for troops to return from Germany in 2015 to deliver the Strategic Defence and Security Review promise of 50% of troops out of Germany by 2015. Of those units planning to move in 2015 there are a small number for whom the necessary end-state infrastructure will not be available in the declared timeframe, and work is ongoing to further understand the implications and identify solutions. As of now MOD remains on track to deliver the announced closure of garrisons in Germany in addition to the return of all Army personnel from Germany to the UK by 2020.
Baseline: £0.00m
Forecast: £0.00m
Variance: None%
Variance text: At Q2 2014/15 the ABP financial position had not matured as quickly as anticipated in the 2014 data set. As a result finance figures were not submitted in the Q2 GMPP report. The programme has subsequently made significant advances including achievement of a number of key programme approvals. As a result financial data is being provided within GMPP reports and will be reflected in the 2016 return, subject to any exemption considerations at that time.
