Description: The Electronic Monitoring (EM) Programme aims to procure an improved electronic tagging system that exploits the latest technology.
DCA (RAG): Red
DCA text: Following an intensive period of planning activity in mid August, the programme produced an integrated plan. An Infrastructure and Projects Authority review confirmed the plan was credible but that the commercial element remained a challenge. Lack of a baseline plan is still a critical issue and work to assure the plan continues. There is ongoing ministerial challenge on the deliverability, shape and purpose of the programme.
Start date: 2011-05-10
End date: 2016-11-30
Schedule text: Given the significant problems and delays, the department initiated a review looking at how to get this programme back on track. This concluded that it would be more appropriate to pursue our objectives using off-the-shelf technology, rather than continuing to develop bespoke tags. We have therefore terminated the contract to develop bespoke tags and are starting a new procurement process for proven tags that are already on the market. We are also proceeding with changes to the way the programme is managed. These changes will allow us to continue to drive and oversee delivery from suppliers. These changes were announced in a Written Ministerial Statement on 25 February 2016. This remains a challenging programme, which we will continue to keep under review.
Baseline: £117.10m
Forecast: £90.82m
Variance: -22.44%
Variance text: Costs in this financial year are below budget. This has been caused by a delay to the programme, spend on consultants and advisers and the impact of deferred costs. The value of change in the system and the effect of re-planning will further impact on costs.
Whole Life Cost: £411.60m
WLCost text: The transition to New World EM contract continues to experience delays leading to actual /forecast lifetime costs being higher than those set out in the Full Business Case.
