Description: The primary objective of the Common Agricultural Policy Delivery Programme is to procure a solution for the processing, payment and accounting of claims for funding from all schemes as part of CAP2013.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: The Amber/Red rating reflected the significant challenges seen at that time in being able to make payments from 1st December 2015 to the Pillar 1 customers who had made claims. This was both in terms of developing and deploying system functionality, and also the volume of manual processing required as a result of the contingency approach invoked at the start of the year. For the Pillar 2 Countryside Stewardship applications, system fixes and workarounds were also required to allow them to be processed and agreements started from 1st January 2016. Defra subsequently began making payments to Pillar 1 customers on the first day of the EU payment window in December. As of 2nd May 2016, £1.28 billion was paid to 85,594 farmers, including around 7,500 bridging payments made to those not in receipt of a claim payment in April. Nearly 3000 mid-tier and higher-tier Countryside Stewardship applications have been received with agreements taking effect from the start of 2016. For 2016 an online application service has been launched for Pillar 1, with additional improvements to the online claim service for Pillar 2. As of 2nd May 2016, 39,397 Pillar 1 applications had been successfully submitted, of which around 33,500 were made online. Further incremental enhancements to the service will be made during the first half of 2016 to develop it for 2017.
Start date: 2011-01-01
End date: 2016-03-31
Schedule text: System development is expected to continue into summer 2016 and the formal end date of the programme is under review.
Baseline: £25.29m
Forecast: £60.63m
Variance: 139.73%
Variance text: 2015/16 Budget is based on the Full Business Case approved by Treasury in March 2014 and Forecast is based on the updated Full Business Case which has subsequently received Treasury approval. The reason for the significant increase in 2015/16 forecast expenditure is due to the requirement to adopt a contingency approach in 2015, which extended the Programme and increased costs.
Whole Life Cost: £154.80m
WLCost text: The Whole Life Cost baseline is from the Full Business Case approved by Treasury in March 2014. A new Full Business Case has subsequently received approval, showing an increased Whole Life Cost of £215.88m. The main areas of cost growth are: i. Core Application Build (Customer portal and rules engine). ii. Environments/Platforms. iii. Programme Support.
