Description: Following termination of the Fujitsu Local Service Provider (LSP) contract in the South on 28 May 2008, arrangements urgently needed to be put in place to ensure continuation of the care record service to the live communities within the BT LSP (South) Programme. Accordingly, on 31 March 2009 a contract was signed with BT LSP to: • support the current live sites, migrate from the Fujitsu data centre to a BT data centre, • deliver Upgrades to Cerner Millennium at 8 Acute Trusts (reduced to 7 when a Trust later merged), • and by later agreement 3 new Cerner Millennium deployments (the ‘Greenfields’), • deliver RiO to 25 Primary Care Trusts and Mental Health Trusts (new deployments and subsequent upgrades) • provide Map of Medicine to the South for three years. This contract lasts until 31 October 2015.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Green
DCA text: Major deployments are completed. Upgrades and additional Clinical functionality continue to be deployed. A Programme Assurance Review occurred in February 2014 (joint between CSC and BT LSP Programmes). Its recommendations were focussed on accelerating exit from the contracts, and gaining clarity on the strategy and relative system responsibilities after the LSP contracts expire. Action planning and activity is occurring, with an assurance of action plan expected summer 2014.
Start date: 2004-01-26
End date: 2015-10-31
Schedule text: Upgrades and additional Clinical functionality continue to be deployed to schedule, such as the upgrades to the RiO electronic patient record system in Community and Mental Health care settings.
Baseline: £75.98m
Forecast: £47.47m
Variance: -37.52%
Variance text: The reduced forecast reflects a significant cost reduction exercise across the government portfolio, which resulted in this specific contract contributing a £33m reduction in total contract value (given up for the FY09/10 Comprehensive Spending Review but realised over several years. This is not reflected in the forecast, but is in the budget).
Whole Life Cost: £634.06m
WLCost text: The whole life costs reflect as in the 2009 Business Case for the South.
