DCA text: Work continues on the Action Plan drawn up by the SRO in response to the Sep 18 PAR and has been brief to the CWP’s (Complex Weapons Programme) IPA representative in Mar 19.   These break down into two main areas; those being address by Portfolio Plus programme which seeks to  refresh the current arrangement with MBDA and deliver further efficiencies to defence for the next decade, and to generate a Strategic Outline BC for the whole CWP to streamline the approvals process.  There are a number of additional actions that have been escalated or resolved and the details of these can be found in the Q4 CWP report.

Schedule text: On track to deliver the planned efficiencies from the Complex Weapons Portfolio
Baseline: £726.25m
Forecast: £778.15m
Variance: 7.00%
Variance text: The In-Year variance reflects the costing challenge set by the Department plus investment in Future Technologies, Stormshadow MLR (mid-life refurb) on Typhoon and minor movements including FOREX across the programmes.
Whole Life Cost: £26,034.99m
WLCost text: The Complex Weapons programme provides weapons to all 3 Services. Costs are for missiles and their In-Service Support, across the CADMID (Concept, Assessment, Demonstration, Manufacture, In-Service, Disposal/Termination) cycle. Whilst individual constituent weapons programmes have a finite life, the overall programme does not - it is assumed it will continue to deliver all Defence's future Complex Weapons needs within a pipeline of funding that, broadly, increases annually in line with inflation. This accounts for the annual step up in Whole-Life Cost as the programmes life increments by another year.
