Description: The main IT supply contracts for the Home Office expire in 2016 (though there is a 12 month transition period built in to the contract which the programme is invoking). The main objective of the Programme is to replace the existing IT service provision for the core Home Office whilst: • taking ownership of the IT estate • maximising the flexibility and agility of our IT provision • minimising the impact of the change on the business • innovating and making use of technology and process enhancements • ensuring service levels are maintained or improved upon (only reduced where conscious and evidenced cost saving decision is made) • minimising the costs of change (transition).
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: The timescale pressure has been reduced by the identification of a ‘handover period’ with the incumbent supplier's contracts, though the time taken to identify possible solutions based on User Research with the Government Digital Service (GDS) has eaten into this, and significant financial and solution / plan risks for the programme remain. TPT is working closely with the GDS to ensure the right level of disaggregation given the complexity of the HO Technology estate. TPT is accelerating the transition away from Fujitsu in the Service areas and is in discussions with Fujitsu to utilise the transition period included in the contract. Aspects of the original programme such as user research have been split out of TPT to enable a better focus on core deliverables.
Start date: 2014-02-01
End date: 2016-09-01
Schedule text: The Programme is on track to deliver within the contractual run off period but is identifying mitigating actions in case of delays in to its contractual discussions with the incumbent suppliers.
Baseline: £29.00m
Forecast: £29.00m
Variance: None%
Variance text: Budget variance less than 5%.
Whole Life Cost: £369.50m
WLCost text: The whole life cost (WLC) forecast includes the cost of transitioning to new suppliers during the five years post transition as shorter G-Cloud contracts are let as part of the transition. The Programme has been financially constrained this year as initial plans were to spend £42m this year and this means that the spend profile has pushed this cost into 2016/17. WLC has increased from the initial value due to the inclusion of 'Cost of Change' as well as an extra year of business as usual costs as the programme is now running longer.
Notes1: Budget variance less than 5%.
