Whole Life Cost: £1,223.20m
WLCost text: Whole life costs of £1233.20m reported in Q2 have been revised downwards to £919.8m. This downwards revision brings the whole life cost forecast in line with the current business case end date of 2022/23. The figure reported in Q2 included the cost of an optional two-year contract extension to 2024/25. As such an extension would require the approval of an additional, separate, business case, those costs have now been removed from the current programme costs. Annual costs for the life of the programme business case remain unchanged.
