DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The IPA conducted an Assurance of Action Plan review for Army Basing Programme (ABP) in Jan 2018. On 19 Jan 2018, this review returned ABP to a position of AMBER from its previous confidence rating of AMBER/RED. This was due to heightened confidence in the delivery of Salisbury Plain Training Area Service Families Accommodation as the Main Gate Business Case approval was given in Nov 2017 and contract agreed. Twelve recommendations were made and worked through by ABP, some of which began looking towards the critical Summer 2019 Moves window, the transition of personnel from Germany (and UK) to new locations in the UK by 2020. A further Gate 0 IPA review was held in Feb 2019, focusing on assessing confidence in this transition plan. ABP were given a confidence rating of AMBER/GREEN on 14 Feb 2019, reflecting the maturing position of the ABP. This rating has been well received, but ABP are not complacent and continue with detailed preparation, including essential EU-exit contingency and mitigation planning.
Start date: 2013-05-22

Schedule text: The Programme is achievable against a 2020 target and continues to make good progress on the critical path activities.

Whole Life Cost: £2,059.26m
WLCost text: The whole life forecast has been extended beyond the end of the programme mandate (31 Mar 2021) as some projects (Kendrew, Upavon, Leuchars and Dreghorn) were delayed as ARMY refined its requirements at those locations due to impact by Defence Estate Optimisation Programme (DEOP). Capital expenditure for these projects beyond Mar 2021 will be transferred into the Army’s Infrastructure Programme (AIP).
