DCA (RAG): Green
DCA text: Despite the tragic crash of an aircraft and resulting loss of 2 crewmembers in Afghanistan in October 2015, the programme nevertheless achieved its Full Operating Capability on 8 January 2016 and is now focussed on Programme Closure and transferral to Business as Usual.
Start date: 2007-02-01
End date: 2016-03-31
Schedule text: The Programme was previously scheduled to complete by 31 December 2015, but this would not have allowed sufficient time to complete the final activities necessary to enable full realisation of benefits and to learn from the experience of the Programme. Approval has therefore been gained to delay the Programme Closure date until 31 March 2016.
