Description: To deliver an integrated multi-role capability that will include the delivery of AJAX and its training solution into service.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The Delivery Confidence Assessment for the Programme has remained steady since the programme's inception. With the AJAX equipment project through the Main Gate 2 phase and on contract for manufacture, the focus for 2015/16 has been to support cross-Defence activities to deliver a coherent Armoured Cavalry capability into service. The recent Army Command Review has mandated a change in programme delivery responsibilities which took effect in April 2016. This will require some refinement to the supporting Programme Artefacts, including the Programme Mandate. Improved overall programme Delivery Confidence Assessment is expected once this is complete.
Start date: 2014-01-22
End date: 2025-04-30
Schedule text: With the AJAX equipment project under contract for manufacture on a fixed platform delivery timeline, the programme is well placed to meet its schedule. Considerable work is on-going to ensure that supporting activity across Defence is aligned to this delivery timeline. The programme is on track to deliver the planned capability to performance, cost and time.
Baseline: £245.92m
Forecast: £237.06m
Variance: None%
Variance text: Budget variance less than 5%.
Whole Life Cost: £6,831.53m
WLCost text: The headline budgeted whole life cost for the programme has remained at c.£6.8Bn throughout the reporting period. Within this headline figure, there has been some rebalancing to fund the Extended Initial In Service Support contract, agreed in July 2015, which provides all necessary support to the AJAX platform to the end of the manufacture period in November 2024. With the AJAX project under contract for manufacture, no significant change to budget whole life costs is anticipated.
Notes1: Budget variance less than 5%.
