DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The most recent Gateway Review in August 2015 gave a delivery confidence of Amber. Whilst significant progress has been made since the previous review and the Programme was considered well placed to achieve its objectives of service rollout to 100% of the English population, uncertaintly around the outcome of the Full Businss Case remains. As recommended following the review, the Programme will take into account new emerging factors around service integration and market development when finalising the Full Business Case.
Start date: 2011-04-01
End date: 2017-04-01
Schedule text: Whilst the Programme has remained on schedule (as amended in July 2013), completion of the Full Business Case has been delayed slightly due to the need to align work with the Spending Review and to address Gateway recommendations. The sequencing of full rollout presented in the business case has been amended to align with the expected spending review settlement resulting in full rollout by April 2020 rather than 2017 as originally anticipated. Key milestones reached during the past 12 months include the commissioning and mobilisation of a second wave of services taking service coverage above 50% of the English population, delivery of a workforce and training development plan in conjunction with Health Education England, delivery of a scoping document for the evaluation of trial services by RAND Europe, and work on service integration and market development by KPMG and the Offender Health Collaborative.
Baseline: £34.80m
Forecast: £34.80m
Variance: None%
Variance text: Budget variance less than 5%
Whole Life Cost: £199.10m
WLCost text: Budgeted whole life costs include the cost of providing services to 100% of the English population, together with non-recurring programme costs to develop services and provide commissioning and implementation support. Whilst these projected costs were accurate at 30/09/15 and reflected the assumption that full rollout would be achieved by 01/04/2017, projections have since been revised for presentation in the Full Business Case resulting in total costs of £380.2m over the remainder of the Spending Review period with full rollout being achieved by 01/04/2020. The increase in whole life costs reflects the extended roll out period rather than any increase in the cost of service provision.
