Maritime Logistics Community News : Autumn 2013
16 MARITIME LOGISTICS COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER SUMMER 2012/AUTUMN 2013 BY CAPT MICK SANDER, RAN AND CMDR PAUL GALL, RAN Rizzo Reform Program (RRP) Completed in July 2011, the Rizzo Review (Plan to Reform Support Ship Repair and Management Practices), identified significant and long standing problems in the repair, maintenance and sustainment of Navy's amphibious fleet. The Rizzo Reform Program was subsequently given its mandate by the Minister for Defence on 18 July 2011. The objective of the Rizzo Reform Program (RRP) is to address the issues identified through the Rizzo Review, transform the Maritime environment and achieve the strategic objectives of improving seaworthiness, achieving agreed preparedness and ensuring efficient total cost of ownership. In doing so, statutory and enterprise risks will be addressed. The 24 recommendations from this review were broken down in to six projects. Following the Minister's mandate, Chief of Navy's Vision for the RRP is: 'A REBUILT AND REDESIGNED EFFECTIVE MARITIME CAPABILITY MANAGEMENT AND TECHNICAL INTEGRITY ASSURANCE SYSTEM THAT DRIVES SEAWORTHINESS AND PREPAREDNESS' Implementation of the Rizzo reforms is being achieved by the Rizzo Reform Implementation Committee (RRIC), chaired by Mr Rizzo and comprising: CN, CEO DMO and ASS SEC COO, with a timeline that will take the program to 2014. RRP is one of CN's main priorities and is certainly a dynamic area in which to work. The Head of Rizzo Reform Program (HRRP) is currently CDRE Mark Purcell; however, the position will shortly pass to CAPT Bob Horsnell on promotion to CDRE in November 12 (with CDRE Purcell to become HMS on promotion to RADM at the same time). The six RRP project Teams consist the following: RRP Title Project Director (PD) Project Project 1 Lifecycle Management Project (LMP) Mr Scott Huxtable Project 2 Capability Management, CAPT Simon Woolrych, Accountability and Responsibility RAN Project (CMARP) Project 3 Rebuild Engineering Project (REP) Capt Steve Basley, RAN (Senior Advisor CDRE Keith Malpress, RANR) Project 4 Through-life Cost of Ownership CAPT Ljiljana Bradley, Project (TCOP) RAN Project 5 Seaworthiness and Integrated Risk CAPT Paddy Hodgman, Management Project (SwIRP) RAN Project 6 Seaworthiness Culture Project (SwCP) CAPT Mick Sander, RAN Seaworthiness Culture Project -- Not Just About Engineering The originally titled Technical Integrity Culture Project, RRP Project 6 was renamed the Seaworthiness Culture Project (SwCP) by the project Board 13 March 2012 to better reflect that this project is about Capability not just Engineering. The term Technical Integrity potentially inferred an engineering issue. The SwCP looks at Seaworthiness Culture Change and, along with Project 5 on Seaworthiness and Integrated Risk Management (SwIRM), crosses the entire Rizzo Reform Program. The end-state will see a balancing of operational mission requirements against long term asset implications. The Project aim is for the development and fostering of a culture that supports and promotes Seaworthiness as a key enabler of Seaworthiness and preparedness. SwCP Team Effectively formed in March 2012, the SwCP Team make up reflects the requirement for Navy and DMO collaboration, which is essential to delivery of the Rizzo reforms as well as the synergies with New Generation Navy (NGN) Signature Behaviours. It is made up of the following personnel: Rizzo Reform Program Seaworthiness culture project -- implementing a seaworthiness culture across Navy and DMO Initially titled the Technical Integrity Culture Project as part of the Rizzo Reform Program (RRP), it evolved to become the Seaworthiness Culture Project (SwCP). It is responsible for implementing a Seaworthiness Culture across Navy and DMO and following project initiation approval by the SwCP Project Board in April 2012, early intervention strategies are underway but there is a long road ahead.
