Description: To enable delivery of the Army 2020 force structure, including support to Service Personnel and their families and the provision of required accommodation and infrastructure in the UK, achieving the policy commitment to withdraw the Army from Germany by 2020.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The confidence rating improved from Amber/Red to Amber. This reflected improvements made within the programme and the understand of the challenges still ahead; a significant task was the re-baselining of the Army Basing Programme against a backdrop of the removal of £60M from the Financial Year 2016/17 in March and a continued uncertainty from A2020 Refine and Footprint Strategy announcements that have brought delays to in year progress. However, significant milestones were reached including the signing of the PAC (Project Allenby Connaught) Contract, the appointment of a “preferred bidder” for the SPTA housing project amongst others.
Start date: 2013-05-22
End date: 2020-03-31
Schedule text: The Programme has exceeded the SDSR10 targets to return 50% of Service Personnel from Germany by 2015. To date almost 16,400 service personnel (82% of the planned total) have returned to the UK, and all remaining moves are planned to complete by 2019. The hand back of estate in Germany is proceeding to plan with over half returned by the end of 2015. The ABP has been impacted by the Better Defence Estate (Nov 16) announcement and the emerging detail of Army 2020 Refine, leading to financial re-profile and programme schedule re-baseline. Further work to refine continues with several projects expected to retire, with the focus remaining on delivery of critical “live and eat” infrastructure.
Baseline: £306.85m
Forecast: £294.50m
Variance: -4.00%
Variance text: Budget Variance less than 5%
Whole Life Cost: £2,009.48m
WLCost text: ABP is a CDEL capped programme with limited RDEL budget. CDEL is used to pay for the capital construction of new infrastructure assets, RDEL is used to fund the physical costs of moving Army personnel, their dependents and equipment under the ABP programme. Operating costs of new infrastructure is funded by DIO Service Delivery therefore ABP do not track the WLC of the projects with the exception of Project Allenby-Connaught where the WLC out to 2041 are in the region of £891M.
