Description: The design, development and manufacture of up to 7 Astute class submarines
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: Boat 3 (HMS Artful) exited Barrow in August 2015 and her good material state on sailing has enabled sea trials to progress well with minimal delays for emerging defects. Boat 5 negotiations for a full boat contract have completed and work is underway to confirm full compliance with the newly established Single Source Contract Regulation. This complex programme remains challenging but progress is being made to improve performance across all areas.
Start date: 1997-03-17
End date: 2024-03-31
Schedule text: The programme schedule will be reviewed during 2016 to ensure that boats 4, 5, 6 and 7 approvals and financial provision are achievable.

WLCost text: The availability of resources, particularly in areas of highly skilled manufacturing staff continues to be challenging. It is likely that there will be some changes to the production schedule in the coming 18 months, and with this there is potential for some programme cost growth; this is not expected to exceed 5%.
Notes1: Budget variance less than 5%.
