Description: The design, development and manufacture of 4 Dreadnought Class ballistic missile submarines.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: The standing up of the Defence Nuclear Organisation, Submarine Delivery Agency and the formation of the Alliance (MOD, BAE Systems and Rolls-Royce) will improve the collective performance of the Dreadnought submarine programme.
Start date: 2011-04-14
End date: None
Schedule text: Delivery Phase 2 (DP2) is the phase in which the design will substantially reach maturity, and in which build activity will escalate significantly: Boat 1 outfitting will commence in the new Central Yard Complex and the fabrication of units for Boat 2 will start. The priority during this phase will be to protect the build schedule in order to ensure Boat 1 will be on patrol in the early 2030s.
Baseline: £1,004.66m
Forecast: £1,249.39m
Variance: 24.00%
Variance text: Forecast includes additional £233M uplift agreed with Defence Resources for the Dreadnought programme (including the Next Generation Nuclear Power Plant, excluding the Core Production Capability) for FY 1718.
Whole Life Cost: £31,497.93m
WLCost text: The 2015 Strategic Defence and Security Review estimated that the manufacture of the four Dreadnought submarines is likely to cost a total of £31Bn (including inflation over the lifetime of the programme), with a contingency of £10Bn. Work undertaken in 2017 confirmed that the current forecast cost for this scope is £30,444M. The incremental approval approach has continued with Delivery Phase 1, with Delivery Phase 2 due to start in April 2018.
