- 38 - RISK ASSESSMENT

- 38 - RISK ASSESSMENT 42. There is very little financial risk associated with this project with the initial outlay for removals being recovered in two years from housing savings—removal costs can be staged over two financial periods. However, the band’s inability to fill key instrument positions and to improve on achieved recruit targets remains a concern. The project cannot proceed beyond stage three unless stage two realises a 10 percent improvement to positions filled and without key instrument categories being filled. CONCLUSION 43. This proposal allows for the redistribution of an element of Royal Australian Navy Band’s assets to Western Australia at minimal cost. The benefits include wider public relations horizons; stronger fleet support and improved recruiting potential, greater support for Chief of Navy’s Goal 6, and improved job satisfaction and retention for the musician category through more varied posting opportunities. RECOMMENDATION 44. Given the level of support from all stakeholders, it is recommended that following favourable consideration of this Business Case by Naval Headquarters, the Director of Music—Navy be given approval to proceed with establishing a permanent detachment of the Royal Australian Navy Band based in Western Australia at the earliest opportunity.
