Description: To manage the delivery of a Search and Rescue Helicopter contract for the provision of search and rescue helicopter services for the UK.
DCA (RAG): Green
DCA text: This project has been delivered with the three remaining bases transitioned on time and to budget. The recommendations of the Gateway 5 Review team are currently being implemented.
Start date: 2011-02-08
End date: 2017-09-08
Schedule text: The final three bases transitioned to operations under the UK Search & Rescue Helicopters (SAR H) contract as planned in April and July 2017. MCA's management of the UK SAR H contract now reflects a steady state phase of operations that will continue until transition-out commences in April 2023. A Gateway 5 Review by an IPA-appointed team took place in early December 2017 resulting in a final report with a Green Delivery Confidence Assessment.
Baseline: £224.30m
Forecast: £204.40m
Variance: -9.00%
Variance text: The variance for 2017/18 is an underspend of 9.1% versus budgeted costs. This is largely attributable to MCA’s management of the contract, negotiating reduced charges for contract variations and enforcing contractual terms where the contractor has not met performance criteria. Financial management of the contract has also benefitted from favourable movements in variable costs such as the lower price of fuel and a lower than expected rate of inflation.
Whole Life Cost: £2,157.40m
WLCost text: Budgeted whole life cost of £2.157bn represents the contracted cost for running the UK Search & Rescue Helicopter (SAR H) Programme from FY 2013/14 until the end of FY 2025/26, inclusive of non-recoverable VAT.
