Description: The scope of the core CEPP Programme is the QEC Carriers, the F-35B Lightning II and the CROWSNEST capability for the Multi-role Merlin. The main focus is the successful delivery of a Carrier Strike capability which is assessed to be the most technically challenging and Force stressing requirement. The other elements of fighting power (amphibious capability and the support shipping) will be managed as key dependencies. The aim is to deliver a successful UK Carrier Strike capability by the end of 2020 followed by enabling the broader CEPP capabilities.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: Overall delivery confidence of the Carrier Enabled Power Projection Programme IOC(CS) remains at Amber (and aligns to the IPA RAG Rating). The programme continues to utilise a robust risk based approach. Significant focused management attention across the CEPP enterprise continues to deliver milestones to time.
Start date: 2011-01-31
End date: 2030-12-01
Schedule text: Overall the CEPP Enterprise remains on schedule to achieve Initial Operating Capacity (IOC) in Dec 20. Significant milestones have been achieved during this period, with IOC(Landing Platform Helicopter) declared in Aug 18 and commencement of Phase 1 of Flying Trials in Sep 18. This is a major step for the programme, bringing together F-35Bs (and helicopters) to the deck of QNLZ for the first time. This met the milestone set in 2013. However these successes should not disguise the fact that the schedule to IOC(CS) remains extremely taut. Robust risk management will continue to be necessary to ensure milestones are met and the Programme moves from Delivery to Generate/Operate.
