Description: The SOCA ICT MODERNISATION Programme (previously SOCA 'ISOT' (Information Systems and Operational Technology) Programme) has replaced multiple legacy ICT contracts with one contract in January 2011 with Logica (now CGI), which enables modernising to an effective, efficient, managed ICT delivery capability.
DCA (RAG): Red
DCA text: To address the RAG status at Q2 13/14 the Programme has mandated the Supplier submits a formal Correction Plan, as also recommended in the last MPA Gateway review. The Correction Plan addresses the Suppliers need to change their deficient Core Desktop solution and re-plan on a phased delivery approach to mitigate development risk. The formal Suppliers Contract Change will be impact assessed by the Authority and any Commercial impact addressed at supplier cost. Work commenced at Supplier Risk on the revised solution in Q1 13/14 with progress being made on early development versions. Regular Engagement with the Crown Representative for the Supplier maintains scrutiny on their obligations, and weekly reporting from the SRIE to the Authority SRO is ensuring corporate commitment to their delivery.
Start date: 2008-04-01
End date: 2013-09-30
Schedule text: The deviation from Schedule is being dealt with in a formal Correction Plan from the Supplier which will result in a Commercial re-baseline within the existing financial envelope. To address the Suppliers complex parallel development issues, the Authority has prioritised the multiple parallel strands of the Suppliers Capability delivery plan to enable a phased approach to be now taken to simplify their Programme Management and focus delivery on benefits delivery for the NCA. The revised plan is being worked on at Supplier Risk until it can be demonstrated they have their development under control and the plan can be rebaselined.
Baseline: £41.97m
Forecast: £38.11m
Variance: -9.20%
Variance text: The overall in year underspend reflects increased RDEL savings as a result of Modernisation services enabling legacy underspends, and CDEL underspends as a result of late delivery of Milestones from the supplier cascading into subsequent years.
Whole Life Cost: £398.65m
WLCost text: The Programme is still on target to achieve the biggest benefit in the Business Case of targeting a reduction in the ICT costs by 30%, saving £214m over the 10 years of the ICT Modernisation Contract compared to the "Do Nothing" option of remaining with the legacy Suppliers. Beyond this, there are further benefits being achieved in reducing retained Authority costs and staff efficiencies.
