Description: CP&F will provide a single online end to end procurement system for all MOD procurement activity. All other processes especially paper based systems will be either replaced or subsumed.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: Progress has continued on the programme with the first tranche of infrastructure now installed; the Initial Operating Capability (Release 2) Detailed Design is now agreed and build has started; the technical platform is now live and design for Full Operating Capability (Release 3) was completed in March 2015. However, until MOD Investment Approvals Committee and Cabinet Office approval and more progress on delivery is achieved, delivery confidence will not be increased. An Action Assurance Plan review in February provides an independent view of progress.
Start date: 2011-12-01
End date: 2018-03-31
Schedule text: The original planned dates for IOC and FOC were June and October 2016 respectively. The forecasts dates are now September 2016 and December 2016 respectively. The delay has occurred due to a number of reasons including, greater technical complexity being revealed as the design has developed and an aggressive timeline that presented too high a risk to success and subsequent impact on the business. The revised dates reflect a more realistic plan and incorporate an increase in both system and user testing. Also an upgrade to the technical platform has been decoupled form the IOC activity to derisk IOC delivery. Successful delivery of the technical platform upgrade in January 2016 has increased confidence in delivery.
Baseline: £38.64m
Forecast: £33.85m
Variance: -12.39%
Variance text: In year variance is as a result of the slower progress then the original plan and therefore deferral of milestone payments to the contractor into financial year 16/17.
Whole Life Cost: £159.73m
WLCost text: Budgeted Whole Life costs include the up front investment (demonstration and manufacture) and then on-going support costs e.g. licence and hardware maintenance support costs over the 10 years.
