DCA text: The programme remains on track to ensure that the NGOV contract goes live on 1 April 2014. The UKVI International Operational Regions with the support of a central HQ project team are currently managing transition to the new contract with the 2 commercial partners.  Contingencies are in place for any locations that are identified as at risk of delivery for 1 April 2014 to ensure continuity of service.  UKVI regions and FCO colleagues are supporting the commercial partner in securing these.  As of March 2014, 16 of 196 commercial partner Visa Application Centres have opened. Lessons learned from these early openings are being considered and either resolved or contingency action taken. Any potential risk to delivery continues to be monitored and resolved as necessary.
