Description: The LE TacCIS Programme will sustain, evolve and where appropriate replace tactical communication and information systems used across the Land Environment. This includes man-portable systems, those mounted on platforms and those in deployed headquarters.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: The MOD is accepts the recommendations made in the IPA review of the LE TacCIS programme in Oct 17 and is working to address them.
Start date: 2013-05-01
End date: 2035-12-31
Schedule text: The programme has refined its long-term design this year and split into 2 tranches - the first to undertake technical and business transformation to enable open architecture and open competition - effectively achieve a baseline for future evolution - and the second tranche to spirally evolve capability over time. The programme is on schedule as planned.
Baseline: £279.49m
Forecast: £258.44m
Variance: -8.00%
Variance text: 17/18 IY Variance has been driven by £21M underspend mostly due to retirement of risk, early delivery of some projects resulting in payments in the previous year and some scheduling changes to other projects.
Whole Life Cost: £11,063.27m
WLCost text: The MOD has identified LE TacCIS as one of the most important change programmes in the Land Environment and is investing accordingly. The Department will become significantly less reliant on large prime contractors and the 'lock-in' that can result. This new approach therefore represents the best value means of Defence retaining an operational advantage. The funding in later years ensures that new capabilities will be evolutionarily developed so that information advantage is not lost.
