DCA text: The Business Case for DH and 12 other organisations to move to the Cabinet Office's preferred solution, ISSC1, (Independent Shared Services Centre 1) was agreed by Secretary of State in Autumn 2013. Since that time the supplier has been working closely with DH on their business critical requirements. This has resulted in a review of prices by the supplier which has cast doubt over the financial viability of moving to ISSC1 for a number of the bodies involved. The current position is that DH is working closely with the supplier and Cabinet Office to understand the drivers for the increased costs and the potential to mitigate them. At present unless prices fall the maximum benefit for Government as a whole will be derived by DH alone migrating to ISSC1 and the other organisations looking for alternative solutions. This is however subject to change as a result of the work currently being undertaken.
