Description: To deliver an integrated multi-role capability that will include the delivery of the AJAX armoured fighting vehicle and its training solution into service.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The Delivery Confidence Assessment for the Programme has remained steady since the programme's inception. In order to improve the IPA RAG grading, we have increased the size and capability of the PMO. The recommended governance structures are now in place; the overall programme Delivery Confidence will improve once the re-cast of the AJAX equipment contract has been formalised.
Start date: 2014-12-04
End date: 2025-04-30
Schedule text: The programme is well-placed to meet its schedule. The programme is running a concurrent Demonstration and Manufacture Phase, which adds significant risk to the programme; this is being managed. IOC is not affected at this stage and remains Q2 2020. The programme is on track to deliver the planned capability to performance, cost and time.
Baseline: £317.43m
Forecast: £309.07m
Variance: -3.00%
Variance text: Budget Variance less than 5%
Whole Life Cost: £6,248.64m
WLCost text: Less c.£40M for infrastructure, these costs are solely for the AJAX project which will deliver the Demonstration, Manufacture and In-Service Phases for the AJAX family of armoured vehicles and the associated training systems. The figures are fully and independently assured. The headline budgeted whole life cost for the programme has reduced from c.£6.8Bn to c.£6.2Bn during the reporting period (Q2 2015/16-Q2 2016/17). This is mainly as a result of a directed cost-saving ABC16 Option, savings as a result of the Extended Initial In Service Support contract, and a downward revision of project costs. This has been partly offset by additional funding required for cannon integration.
