Baseline: £236.10m
Forecast: £187.60m
Variance: -21.00%
Variance text: Rate of spend has decreased in 2017/18 as a result of delivery now focused in harder to reach areas which require more planning time and more complex wayleaves before deployment can take place. Also, in 2017/18 Openreach focused on commercial delivery (areas not requiring public subsidy) at the expense of BDUK delivery, in order to support the 95% UK target. This was agreed with Ministers.
Whole Life Cost: £2,439.21m
WLCost text: The c£2.2bn whole life cost is made up of c£1.7bn public sector funding and the remainder supplier investment. Of the £1.7bn public sector funding, £770m has been provided by BDUK with the remainder being match funding provided by Local Authorities.
