Description: OSCAR replaces the COINS financial reporting system which supports fiscal management and spending control within HMT, produces Parliamentary Estimates and Public Expenditure Statistics.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: Confidence in project delivery is generally high. Amber status reflects a necessary deviation from the original delivery schedule. Although identified costs are on an upward trajectory, the project is still expected to deliver within its total budget and in line with the timeframes required by the business.
Start date: 2011-08-24
End date: 2013-02-07
Schedule text: Delays to the very complicated WGA elements of the project mean that we are now working towards signing off the final delivery milestone at the end of May 2013
Baseline: £4.71m
Forecast: £4.67m
Variance: -0.89%
Variance text: Spend in 2012/2013 has been higher than forecasted, due to the WGA dealys. This overspend is likely to be offset by an underspend in 2011/2012
Whole Life Cost: £19.56m
WLCost text: Total whole life costs currently exceed that originally forecast. Whole life costs include a generous allowance for future upgrades during the life of the project and will only be used if essential. As a result, it is quite possible that the overspend may be reduced before the end of the life of the solution.
