Description: To deliver 2 Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The IPA described seeing much progress since the last review, its Amber assessment was based on issues around: HMS Queen Elizabeth’s First Entry to Portsmouth (FEP); cost clarity; manning requirements; the Common Support Model (CSM) business case and support in the Solent when unable to enter port. These actions are being progressed through the stakeholders and included in Holding to Account discussions. FEP will now be a comparatively low key event with a later ceremonial event. A comprehensive assessment of Programme costs has been produced. Manning is being successfully managed based on continued prioritisation. Plans for support in the Solent will be implemented as we gain experience of operating HMS Queen Elizabeth from her home port.
Start date: 1998-12-01
End date: 2023-03-31
Schedule text: Challenges exist within HMS Queen Elizabeth’s near-term schedule, with technical issues on several systems presenting risk to the Ships Staff Move-on Board and Ready for Sea Date programme milestones. The Ship’s Company and Aircraft Carrier Alliance are working closely to manage these serials. HMS Prince of Wales’ schedule has further to run and lessons from HMS Queen Elizabeth are being incorporated.
