Description: To deliver an integrated Armoured Infantry capability that will include the Warrior Capability Sustainment Project (WCSP) and its training solution into service.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The Delivery Confidence Assessment for the Programme has remainded steady since the programme's inception and is likely to remain so at least until contract for manufacture. The WCSP equipment project is through Main Gate but has yet to contract for manufacture - which is a key milestone for the next reporting period. The focus in 2015/16 has been progressing cross-Defence activities to deliver a coherent Armoured Infantry capability into service. The recent Army Command Review has mandated a change in programme delivery responsibilities within the Army HQ - which took effect in April 2016. This will require some refinement to the supporting Programme Artefacts, including the Programme Mandate. It is anticipated that once this is complete, it will be possible to improve the overall programme Delivery Confidence Assessment.
Start date: 2014-12-04
End date: 2026-12-31
Schedule text: Primary focus for the schedule is the equipment line of development for WCSP. There has been considerable effort in this area, working with the prime contractor to understand their level of confidence in the delivery schedule. While the programme is currently on track to deliver the planned capability to performance, cost and time, this will be confirmed once the equipment is on contract for manufacture and the implications of the SDSR are worked through.
Baseline: £90.50m
Forecast: £84.15m
Variance: -7.01%
Variance text: Variance of -7.01% is mainly a result of the decision to realise Defence-directed in-year savings.
Whole Life Cost: £2,176.45m
WLCost text: The headline budgeted whole life cost for the programme has remained at c.£2.2Bn throughout the reporting period. The 2015/16 variance is a result of Defence-wide in-year savings. There may be additional rebalancing in early years to support equipment delivery ahead of a manufacturing contract.
