Description: The Type 45 is a new class of six Anti-Air Warfare Destroyers, to replace the capability provided by the Royal Navy’s existing Type 42s. The warship is being procured nationally. The Type 45 will carry the Principal Anti-Air Missile System (Now termed "Sea Viper") which is capable of protecting the vessels and ships in their company against aircraft and missiles, satisfying the Fleet’s need for area air defence capability into the 2030s. The Principal Anti-Air Missile System is being procured collaboratively with France and Italy. The T45 Team within Ship Support (Alliance) is responsible for providing the Principal Anti-Air Missile System to the warship Prime Contractor, via the MAWS Project Team within the Weapons Operating Centre.
DCA (RAG): Green
DCA text: The Type 45 programme's cost reductions and schedule adherence have been externally audited and validated via the annual NAO MPR process. Indeed, the most recent MPR covering the year up to end March 2012, which was published on 10 January 2013, acknowledged that the Type 45 build programme had released risk contingency now that In-service date had been achieved. The report further commented that the holding of such contingency funds against risks during the build programme was a prudent approach.
Start date: 2000-08-15
End date: 2014-07-31
Schedule text: As at April 2013, all 6 Ships have been Accepted Off Contract and 5 of these having been declared In-Service, the programme continues to deliver successfully against its key milestones. Remaining milestones for the final 2 ships remain on target.
Baseline: £252.24m
Forecast: £146.86m
Variance: -41.78%
Variance text: Budget Figures represent Planning Round 12 Control totals for FY12/13 onwards. Forecast Figures for FY12/13 represent the Projects Accounting Period 4 Forecast. The forecast reduction of £105m comprises release of risk provision (£39.5m), an improved forecast to completion of the ship build & Principal Anti Air Missile System (PAAMS) contracts (£21.5m) and BAES Terms Of Business Agreement savings (£44m). All of these result from successful delivery of key programme milestones during FY11/12 and the first Quarter of FY12/13.
Whole Life Cost: £0.00m
WLCost text: The number will conflict with the value given in the latest MPR report, due to it using a different financial reference point. PT believe that the MPR figure should be the single, audited cost reference for the whole programme.
