DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: Work continues on the Action Plan drawn up by the SRO in response to the June 2017 PAR, with progress being monitored by the IPA. Good progress is being made on the 'Essential' and 'Recommended' actions. Most 'Critical' recommendations have been addressed; however, the recommendation that the headcount resourcing shortfall be resolved remains intractable, despite ongoing, continuous focus on the issue, and it remains a significant cause of risk to successfully delivering the programme's outcomes.
Start date: 2008-03-31
End date: 2032-04-01
Schedule text: The Complex Weapons programme remains on track to deliver its outcomes and benefits.
Baseline: £736.16m
Forecast: £704.43m
Variance: -4.00%
Variance text: Budget variance less than 5%
Whole Life Cost: £22,179.52m
WLCost text: The Complex Weapons programme provides weapons to all 3 Services. Costs are for missiles and their In-Service Support, across the CADMID cycle. Whilst individual constituent weapons programmes have a finite life, the overall programme does not - it is assumed it will continue to deliver all Defence's future Complex Weapons needs within a pipeline of funding that, broadly, increases annually in line with inflation. This accounts for the annual step up in Whole-Life Cost as the programmes life increments by another year.
