Description: To enable delivery of the Army 2020 force structure, including support to Service Personnel and their families and the provision of required accommodation and infrastructure in the UK, achieving the policy commitment to withdraw the Army from Germany by 2020.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: In 2015 the latest phase of Unit returns from Germany (returning 5,000 personnel plus dependents) and basing within the UK was completed. The majority of the related 46 infrastructure projects have now reached the detailed design stage and are proceeding into procurement. Agreement to deliver new infrastructure on Salisbury Plain has been received from the Treasury and the programme is placing a high priority on taking this forward to contract let and delivery and the related service families accommodation build to allow the 2019 final return from Germany. The Programme is seeking confirmation of a revised Programme funding profile and greater certainty of our ability to contract for a number of projects in 2016.
Start date: 2013-05-22
End date: 2020-03-31
Schedule text: The Programme has exceeded the SDSR10 targets to return 50% of Service Personnel from Germany by 2015. To date almost 15,000 service personnel (74% of the planned total) have returned to the UK, including 5,000 in 2015, and all remaining moves are planned to complete by 2019. The hand back of estate in Germany is proceeding to plan with over half returned by the end of 2015. That said, due to the deferral of funding (mandated by MOD Centre) from FY15/16 and the need to reprofile the Capital Infrastructure Programme (CIP) for future years, subsequent alignment of the supporting infrastructure with the rephased available funding over the life of the Programme has resulted in delays to the completion of infrastructure on a number of sites
Baseline: £345.74m
Forecast: £146.74m
Variance: -57.56%
Variance text: Departmental financial pressures in year required a deferral of ABP expenditure from FY 15/16 to the value of £169M.  This funding has been reprofiled in later years providing a revised Programme delivery infrastructure schedule and budget profile. Where this results in delays to infrastructure delivery we are implementing short term plans to mitigate the impact in agreement with the Army.
Whole Life Cost: £1,972.11m
WLCost text: Budget variance less than 5%.
