Description: The National Cyber Security Programme (NCSP) was put in place as a consequence of the Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR), with a budget of £650 million over 4 years. Its aim is to deliver a transformative programme to give the UK a strategic advantage in cyber security and resilience. The programme is managed by the Office of Cyber Security and Information Assurance (OCSIA) in the Cabinet Office. With the agreement of Treasury as part of the latest Spending Review, the programme has been extended for a fifth year to 2015-16, with an additional £210m funding.
DCA (RAG): Green
DCA text: 1. The NCSP 2014 Health check has now concluded and recommendations from that are being used to inform the Business Case process for Financial Year (FY) 15/16. As part of this round of Business Cases, delivery partners have been advised to consider the two scenarios post March 2016 when the NCSP is due to finish: what plans do they have in place if no further Programme is created and what plans do they have if there is another Programme (what further transformational work would they look to do). 2. The Health check also baselined where the Programme currently is, and work is underway to gather evidence for SDSR (as per Business Case scenario work above). 3. We have also created a new 'risk champion' within the Programme Team and have been working with delivery partners to improve risk reporting both in this FY and next FY.
Start date: 2011-04-01
End date: 2016-04-01
Schedule text: The Programme is still scheduled to complete on 01/04/2016
Baseline: £210.00m
Forecast: £220.00m
Variance: 4.80%
Variance text: Variance above is due to planned over programming by the Programme Team. This reflects the maturity of the Programme and ensures better financial management of delivery partners. We have undergone a mid year review of finances in November and we now forecast that our total outturn for FY 14/15 will be £207.63m. This is a varaince of 1% from 14/15 budget. £2m of the projected underspend was rolled over at mid-year for use in the final year of the programme.
Whole Life Cost: £860.00m
WLCost text: We received Ministerial approval for the allocations for FY 15/16 on 25th February, which takes us up until the end of this programme. We will continue to monitor finances throughout the final year of the programme as per the previous 4 years.
