I’ve only skimmed those docs, but is the issue that they are going from their current dedicated radio networks (TETRA, etc) that cover large areas, to LTE networks which is provided over carrier networks that have less coverage, therefore the need for more investment to cover the same area as the dedicated radio network?

No doubt that there will be a "lessons learned" compiled by the Home Office from this mess for next time

"The NAO said there are also a number of commercial risks to ESN. The Home Office is currently renegotiating the programme’s main contracts with Motorola and EE, but these are behind schedule. “Motorola needs to be carefully managed as it is both a main supplier to ESN and the owner of Airwave … It could therefore benefit financially from further delays if Airwave is extended,” said the report."

Perhaps they should have waited for 5G to be rolled out
