Air Warfare Destroyer project removed from Projects of Concern list

The Air Warfare Destroyer project has been removed from the Projects of Concern list following continuing improvements in shipbuilding performance.
This major milestone is a result of the implementation of the Turnbull Government’s reform program.
Following an independent review by Professor Don Winter and Dr John White and a review by the Australian National Audit Office, the project was placed on the Projects of Concern list in June 2014 due to increasing commercial, schedule and cost risks.
