Top 30 Projects by 2004-05 Expenditure

SEA 1348 Anzac Ship Project

Prime contractor: Tenix Defence

This project involves delivery of ten ships, associated shore facilities and logistic support. Two of the ten ships (02 and 04) were for the Royal New Zealand Navy. Eight ships have been delivered and are in service with the Royal Australian Navy and the Royal New Zealand Navy.

Ship 09 (Toowoomba) was delivered on 22 July 2005. Tenix, being ahead of schedule, offered to deliver the ship early (in March 2005), but the Navy was unable to accept delivery before the agreed contract date of July 2005. Ship 10 (Perth) was launched in March 2004, and is planned for delivery on 16 June 2006.

The project did not achieve its 2004-05 expenditure targets. The prime contractor's proposed earned value payments did not meet estimates due to a re-plan of work by the contractor from 2004-05 into 2005-06. This does not affect the Prime Contract Ship delivery milestones. Additionally, enhancement work for in-service ships did not occur as programmed as changes to ship availability dates impacted on installation schedules.

This project contributes to Navy capability.
