Description: The PROTECTOR Programme will deliver a future UK capability for deep and persistent armed surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: At Q2 16/17 insufficient manpower across the programme, in a variety of appointments drove confidence in achieving the IOC milestone to remain AMBER. Planned action throughout Q3 16/17 has marginally improved manpower, but not yet to a level that affects the delivery confidence. Planned activity to address the overall force structure within the PROTECTOR programme includes the commissioning of an independent manpower study, led by the Defence Scientific Technology laboratories (DSTL) and increased fill of established programme posts. The challenges to procurement to include US export regulations add complexity to the programme and support the assessment of a delivery confidence of AMBER. Planned activity to address this has involved consistent engagement through the creation of a governance regime with the US System Program Office (SPO) and this is expected to mature throughout 2017.
Start date: 2009-04-30
End date: 2023-05-31
Schedule text: Main Gate was achieved Jun 16, 2 months behind the baseline date of Apr 16, despite this there are no assessed changes at Q2 16/17 for either IOC or FOC of the PROTECTOR programme, however IOC RAG assessment remains AMBER due to the delivery confidence issues relating to US export regulations and shortfalls in manpower . FOC1 (May 23) relates to the PROT core programme, a further milestone (FOC2) will be defined for the PROT Enhanced additions.
Baseline: £13.78m
Forecast: £15.28m
Variance: 11.00%
Variance text: The variance in Q2 16/17 against the current year is -1.500M and is predominately related to FOREX movement. In addition, FOREX remains a factor on variance throughout the period. Despite a significant IY variance, the overall variance across the 10 year total remains less than 1% due to equipment savings.
Whole Life Cost: £929.34m
WLCost text: Due to the maturity of the programme the budgeted WLC, specifically the Contracted Logistics Support (CLS), remain based on pre-MGBC studies and assumptions. Development of the CLS Solution to be delivered through a predominately DCS contract and a small FMS contract for sensitive equipment, has not yet reached sufficient maturity to allow formal costing activity to take place.
