Description: A major change programme across 152 local authorities to deliver the reforms to the adult social care system set out in the Care Act 2014.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Green
DCA text: This reflects the progress made by local authorities on implementation of Phase 1 and the decision to close the programme in March 2016. There are robust closure plans in place for the programme and the Programme has been replanned and rescoped to remove Phase 2 of the reforms from the programme. The change in programme scope removed much of the risk which contributed to an A/R assessment in the IPA Review in April 2015.
Start date: 2013-06-04
End date: 2016-12-01
Schedule text: A decision has been made to delay implementation of Phase 2 of the reforms (the cap on care costs and the new appeals system) until April 2020, so they are now out of scope and will be taken forward by a new programme in due course.
Baseline: £512.10m
Forecast: £354.50m
Variance: -30.78%
Variance text: The forecast RDEL figure for 15/16 has been reduced to reflect changes in the programme budget following the delay to Phase 2. The RDEL figure for 15/16 also previously included £146m for preparation for Phase 2. The £146m will remain with local government, however the majority of that funding (aside from 10% which remains allocated to LAs to meet any obligations made when planning for the cap) will not remain with the programme. Final decisions are still to be made about the purpose of that funding.
Whole Life Cost: £18,619.20m
WLCost text: The whole life cost for the programme covers the period from 2013/14 to 2024/25. These are the baseline costs as set out in the Impact Assessment and are based on delivery of Phase 1 and 2 of the reforms. Actual costs will now change as a result of the delay to Phase 2. The programme for Phase 1 will close March 2016 and Phase 2 costs will be picked up in a new programme which will commence in April 2018.
