Description: The NCA ICT Modernisation Programme (previously SOCA 'ISOT', and '2010 Programme') 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. The FBC targeted a 30% saving against the "Do Nothing" option of retaining the previous Suppliers. The Programme successfully completed the Transition phase exiting incumbent suppliers without operational service disruption, and commencing the ICT Modernisation Implementation phase.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: Supplier delivery issues have required re-base lining and re-contractualising the implementation plan; firstly in December 2011 (which was contained within the HMT and Group Investment Board (GIB) approvals envelope), and again by December 2014, following the recommendations of an MPA Gateway Review in November 2012 driven largely by the Supplier's issues with their original solution. (This was a change to the core Desktop solution from a discontinued Oracle/Sun product set, at the Suppliers cost, to a revised capability based on a new virtual desktop with supporting Infrastructure and Data Centre consolidation).
Start date: 2008-04-01
End date: 2013-09-30
Schedule text: The desktop solution has been the Modernisation Programme's focus in 2013 and 2014; whilst achieving the ICT changes to support the NCA's formation in 2013. The Virtual Desktop Pilot was successful, with Roll-out in Q1/2015, followed by the physical devices scheduled to be deployed through Q3/2015, with the Full Business Case (FBC) protected by trading some Supplier obligations out for a more mobile solution for the NCA’s benefit. The Programme is still tightly controlled by the Authority and on track to achieve the FBC savings of £213m over 10 years.
Baseline: £33.73m
Forecast: £38.74m
Variance: 14.90%
Variance text: The 2014/15 variance is due to the Supplier's overall programme slippage, with milestone payments due in previous years underspends now falling into this Financial Year. This will be accommodated and smoothed in the Re-Baselining for the Correction Plan in December 2014, and managed within the NCA budgets.
Whole Life Cost: £398.65m
WLCost text: The Programme is still on track to achieve its objectives within the 2010 HMT approval envelope, and the FBC savings of £213m over 10 years.
