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 accepted the recommendations made in the IPA review of the LE TacCIS programme in Oct 17 and has worked to address them. Strong progress has been made as evidenced in the LE TacCIS review in Oct 18, with some work ongoing to close out the remaining recommendations ahead of a further IPA review of the programme in Oct 19.
Start date: 2013-05-01
End date: 2035-12-31
Schedule 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. The programme is executed to a robust risk adjusted schedule following ISS scheduling standards and closely managed between the Army HQ Programme Management Office and the BATCIS Project Support Office. The programme schedule performance risk is briefed at the appropriate governance boards and continually reviewed with risk of delay escalated where necessary. The programme schedule enables the correct activity to be initiated, managed and tracked across the DLoDs to ensure the evolutionarily capability LE TAcCIS will deliver can be effectively integrated into the Front Line Commands.
Baseline: £273.66m
Forecast: £251.70m
Variance: -8.00%
Variance text: Financial Year 2018/19 in-year variance of £21.9M underspend, is mostly due to competition efficiencies, retirement of risk and scheduling changes to a number of projects.
Whole Life Cost: £11,142.64m
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’s aim to become significantly less reliant on large prime contractors and the resultant 'lock-in' should represent the best value means of Defence retaining an operational advantage. Furthermore, moving the LE TacCIS programme to smaller incremental capability changes will reduce financial risk and enable better management of Whole Life Costs.
