Description: The Common Platform (CP) Programme aims to deliver a technology platform which supports business transformation across the Crown Prosecution Service and Her Majesty's Courts and Tribunals Services (HMCTS).
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: A recent approval meeting with Cabinet Office and HM Treasury was positive and the programme continues to scale up in line with the Outline Business Case plan. The current delivery confidence rating is amber red, which reflects the complexity of the programme and the innovative use of agile development principles. In this case, agile refers to building and testing in small chunks, and working quickly to deliver improvements to a service. As products are successfully developed and experience of agile working develops within the programme, this rating is expected to improve.
Start date: 2012-11-01
End date: 2019-03-29
Schedule text: There have been a number of early deliveries into pilots and early adopters which will support future development. If successful, the products will be further developed and rolled out nationally. For example, work also continues on the Online Plea service, taking pleas for summary non-imprisonable offences, the Magistrates’ Rota which will allow Magistrates to enter and manage their availability for court sittings online and a digital mark-up product to allow results to be captured digitally in-court. There have been changes in the Senior Management Team of the programme during this reporting period with the majority of replacements now in place, but there is an inevitable loss of continuity and potential impact on delivery plans while new resources get up to speed.

Whole Life Cost: £380.84m
WLCost text: The Whole Life Cost for the programme has decreased to £350.6m, mainly due to the reduction in licencing costs across the lifetime of the programme.
