Description: Most major ICT contracts for the department were due to expire in at the end of November 2015. This programme is to provide for continuity of operations for ICT services for the CPS beyond Nov 2015. Some of the services provided through the main PFI contract with CGI have been extended to end of Mar 2017. The contracts for Print Services and the Networks and Telephony Services have been removed from the PFI deal and have been procured through relevant frameworks with contracts commencing on 1 Dec 2015 and services transitioning from then to 1 Jun 2016. Having completed the necessary procurements, this programme will manage all service transitions.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The CPS successfully implemented the new contracts with CGI, Xerox (Print) and Level 3 (PSN S and PSN C) on 1st December 2015, without disruption to service and at new, reduced pricing. The remaining activity for the programme and the CPS is to implement the technical changes proposed by the suppliers to ensure full cost savings can be realised. In preparation for the implementation of new technologies the programme has been working with suppliers to develop and agree rollout plans for the new technologies planned to commence in February 2016. The major risk to the CPS and the programme is disruption to services. There are some new technologies to be rolled out and this continues to give rise to some programme risk. The roll out will take place in a planned and controlled manner with governance and change control in place minimising disruption to service. Whilst the risk of service disruption is low, the consequences would be severe; thus leading to the RAG rating remains at Amber.
Start date: 2013-10-01
End date: 2016-05-01
Schedule text: The CPS successfully implemented the new contracts with CGI, Xerox (Print) and Level 3 (PSN S and PSN C) on 1st December 2015 to plan. The remaining activity for the programme and the CPS is to implement the technical changes proposed by the suppliers to ensure full cost savings can be realised. Issues have been identified with the PSN rollout plans which have pushed out the completion date. This will not impact the business continuity and will have only minor impact on the benefit realisation as much of the new pricing starts from 1/1/16. The PSN S transition is dependent on the completion of the PSN C project for it to complete. The rollout plan has also been pushed back for the implementation of the new Print service. The delay will not impact the business continuity and any delayed benefit realisation is more than compensated for by reduced volumes.
