Description: The current contract that provides DVLA with most of its ICT service needs must be replaced by September 2015, when the contract arrangement with IBM expires. The Agency is looking to transform its ICT provision by adopting supply chain principles defined in the Government IT Strategy. DVLA’s current ICT landscape has evolved incrementally since 2001 and is complex, predominantly out-of date and economically unsustainable. The programme will explore how DVLA: a) migrates to a more flexible set of ICT contracts with industry b) Reduces its dependency the ICT market and contractors by establishing stronger internal capability c) Incrementally retires its legacy ICT systems with replacements that are cheaper, more flexible and support the Agency’s business strategy Expected benefits a) Business continuity through the period of change b) Optimisation of ICT cost savings against the current spend of approximately £145m. c) Improved delivery of core IT services, and enabling the delivery of digital services by agile methods to simplify customer interactions d) Enhanced in-house capabilities to better manage future supply chain and enable delivery of business change e) Leveraging pan-government procurement frameworks and alignment with Government IT Strategy

Schedule text: In October 2013 DVLA, in consultation with DfT and Cabinet Office stood down activity on CLPP in order to ensure that it's requirements, particularly around procurement, were fully understood and in line with the Agency’s overall technology and transformation plan. A subsequent period of analysis has confirmed CLPP was unlikely to deliver the expected benefits as planned and therefore it was necessary to deliver change more rapidly in order to transform DVLA's IT estate. Building on the work delivered through CLPP, the Strategic Transform Portfolio was formally launched in January 2014 and includes the work required to exit the PACT contract and conduct the procurement necessary to support the transformed estate.
