Description: The Carrier Enabled Power Projection Programme (CEPP) comprises the Queen Elizabeth Class (QEC) Aircraft Carriers, the Lightning II Short Take off and Vertical Landing (STOVL) Joint Strike Fighter variant aircraft and the CROWSNEST early warning capability for the Multi-role Merlin helicopter. The main focus of the CEPP Programme is the successful delivery of a Carrier Strike capability which is assessed to be the most technically challenging and Force stressing requirement. The other elements of fighting power (amphibious capability and the support shipping) will be managed and delivered by the most appropriate Front Line Command (FLC) as key dependencies. The aim is to deliver a successful UK Carrier Strike capability by the end of 2020 followed by enabling the broader CEPP capabilities. The QEC, Lightning II and CROWSNEST projects provide separate DMPP returns with the associated financial data.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: The 2014/15 Q2 RAG assessment was based on the delivery challenges within the core CEPP programmes. The SRO for CEPP issued objectives to improve RAG delivery confidence that were focussed on the major programme risks, specifically, equipment, support, infrastructure and personnel. This work is progressing with other major achievements including: the Queen Elizabeth naming ceremony; announcement of retaining and operating the second carrier; Main Gate approval and move to contract for the first operational F35B Lightning II aircraft; and continuing to develop and mature the operating model (with credible evidence) against which future capability choices can be made and supported. While considerable progress has been made since the last report, delivery challenges remain significant, especially for the QEC programme.
Start date: 2011-01-31
End date: 2030-12-30
Schedule text: No change to end date since last year. The Red/Amber RAG status at 2014/15 Q2 reflected the major risks and issues which were apparent in a number of areas such as delivery schedules and support solutions which will require additional maturity. Progress is closely monitored and reported through CEPP governance processes. The objectives issued by the Senior Responsible Owner (SRO) are the route to improving the delivery confidence and keeping the programme on schedule, by promptly resolving the risks and issues. This appears feasible at this stage.
Baseline: £1.58m
Forecast: £1.58m
Variance: 0.00%
Variance text: Budget variance less than 5%
Whole Life Cost: £21.70m
WLCost text: Whole Life Cost above reflects the additional marginal CEPP costs over the life of the programme - derived from the overall Head Office finance costs. Budgeted Whole Life Costs for the constituent projects (QEP / Lightning II and CROWSNEST) are included within their own submissions.
