The Projects of Concern regime is a proven process for managing the remediation of underperforming projects. This is done by implementing an agreed plan to resolve significant commercial, technical, cost and/or schedule difficulties and increasing senior management and ministerial oversight. A Project of Concern Summit was held with the Minister for Defence and the Minister for Defence Industry on 3 December 2019.
Table 7.1 provides a list of Projects of Concern as at 30 June 2020. There has been no change since the 2019–20 reporting period.
