Description: To provide a Terminal Air Traffic Management capability for Defence that will ensure that core Air Traffic functions continue to be provided, obsolete equipment is replaced, and new regulatory conditions are met.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Green
DCA text: Following the 'Seamless' transfer of responsibility for existing Air Traffic Management capabilities to Aquila (1 April 2015), they have fully achieved the contractual levels of service availability. As we proceed further into the 'Asset Provision Phase', work intensity has increased as Aquila begin providing the wide array of ATM equipment across multiple sites. The introduction of Wide Area Multilateration will be particularly challenging, however lessons are available from both civil and overseas markets to aid the integration of this new equipment. Equipment acceptance activities remain intense with continued strong support from the Military Aviation Authority and the Release To Service Authority. Contract governance arrangements are bedding-in and are integrated with existing capability governance mechanisms, but some work is needed to improve effectiveness. We remain confident that Marshall is well placed to contribute and respond to SDSR decisions; the challenge will be maintaining alignment between Marshall and other capabilities that have a dependency on ATM. This risk will continue to be monitored closely.
Start date: 2006-04-03

Schedule text: Early indications of the processes involved in the planned management of the Programme are positive, with the Marshall Vesting Day when present ATM capabilities transferred to the service provider occurring as planned on 1 April 2015
Baseline: £74.42m
Forecast: £70.29m
Variance: -5.55%
Variance text: The variance In Year (£4M) is due to a number of factors including a revised estimate of cost of the end of the Assessment Phase for Marshall which was brought forward, a recalculation of risk following a Project Team review, reduced cost estimate for the Network WAN and the removal of Private Sector Support (PSS).
Whole Life Cost: £1,819.96m
WLCost text: Changes at the end of the Annual Business Cycle round in spring 2015 (ABC15) re-set budgets. Subsequently there have been small budget changes reflecting adjustments to elements of the programme delivery.
