DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: Following agreement to baseline the revised Programme Plan at the Hutton Steering Committee in September 2015, the Programme continues to focus on activities to ensure the Critical Path tasks are achievable and the Programme remains on track to deliver by July 2017. Three of the nine Service Component deliverables as part of the overall Pensions Re-Procurement Programme are being delivered within wider BSA Corporate Projects. Although the responsibility for delivery is within the scope of these Corporate Projects, the Pensions Re-Procurement Programme remains accountable for the delivery of the Pensions elements. As such the Pensions Re-Procurement Programme continues to work closely with each of the Corporate Project Leads to ensure the Pension related tasks/activities remain on track and appropriate assurances are given that critical tasks are progressing and delivering to planned key milestones. Over the coming months a significant amount of procurement activities and documentation require completion and the Core Programme Team will proactively manage these activities to ensure any slippages are addressed as soon as they are identified ensuring the Programme remains on track. Additional Business Analysts and Strategic Sourcing resources will be put in place to enable positive progression of these activities. A key success to date is the production of the Outline Business Case(OBC) which has been delivered earlier than planned which has enabled an early release of an initial draft of the OBC to external approvers.
Start date: 2013-07-05
End date: 2017-07-21
Schedule text: Following a period of re-planning carried out during Quarter 2, it became apparent that a revised approach to delivery of the Programme to meet expected timescales of July 2017 was required. This approach was documented, presented and agreed by the Hutton Steering Committee on 25/09/2015. As a result of the revised approach the Programme Plan was amended accordingly; although this changed the original reported milestone dates for key deliverables, it still ensured the original agreed delivery of the Programme by July 2017. Critical path activities remain on target with activities such as Pensioner Payroll Services Prior Information Notice (PIN) being issued to the Market within reported timescales, Supplier Bootcamps held as planned with an acceptable attendance/interest from the supplier market and the Outline Business Case being produced and issued for external approvals ahead of schedule.
