Description: The scope of the core CEPP Programme is the QEC Carriers, the F-35B Lightning II and the CROWSNEST capability for the Multi-role Merlin. The main focus is the successful delivery of a Carrier Strike capability which is assessed to be the most technically challenging and Force stressing requirement. The other elements of fighting power (amphibious capability and the support shipping) will be managed as key dependencies. The aim is to deliver a successful UK Carrier Strike capability by the end of 2020 followed by enabling the broader CEPP capabilities.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The following top risks remain: schedule achievability, sufficient trained personal and affordable/effective support solutions. An outturn standard for QEC has been agreed. SRO(CEPP) continues to closely monitor the progress of the CEPP Core Programmes and the related enabling capabilities to ensure that programme milestones are met. The following measures have been implemented to assure continued progress is made: assuring delivery through regular readiness reviews, particularly before any major milestones; addressing individual programme and CEPP level risks to delivery; identifying and addressing key unfunded dependencies; developing UK/US Statement Of Intent (SOI) interoperability opportunities and Implementing the SDSR 15 CEPP measures. Furthermore a National Audit Office (NAO) study is planned for Q1/Q2 2016 and is expected to focus on interdependencies and programme benefits.
Start date: 2011-01-31
End date: 2026-12-01
Schedule text: The Project end date has changed since last report from December 2030 to December 2026 to reflect the point that FOC(CEPP) is achieved. The Amber RAG status reflects the major risks and issues which were apparent in a number of areas. The objectives issued by the SRO are the route to improving the Delivery Confidence Assessment and keeping the programme on schedule, by promptly resolving the risks and issues . This appears feasible at this stage.
