Description: The Future Information Technology Sourcing (FITS) programme aims to deliver at least £95m per annum reduction in MoJ ICT operating costs through the design and implementation of a new ICT Operating Model.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: In November 2015 the MoJ Executive Committee (ExCo) approved two decisions that impacted on the direction and focus of the FITS programme. Firstly, ExCo agreed to extend the NICTS (NOMS Prison) contract, delivered by HP, for up to two years. This de-scoped NICTS from the FITS Programme, the exceptions to this being that the provision of WAN\LAN , Voice and JVS Video Services will continue to be delivered by the relevant FITS Suppliers and transition is underway for these services. Secondly, ExCo agreed that the Programme should consider a new End User Computing Solution (EUCS) with a view to designing and implementing a faster and cheaper way of delivering IT services to staff. The new technological solutions under consideration will allow the MOJ to introduce modern IT services, further minimise costs and improve IT efficiencies. Detailed assessment of these changes are ongoing between the MoJ and the FITS Suppliers and on completion of this activity a revised business case will be submitted to ExCo for its approval. The FITS programme continues to transition services to the FITS Suppliers, both commercially and technically and transitions have included: WAN and telephony within the National Offender Management ICT Service (NICTS); video services for Her Majesty's Courts and Tribunal Service (HMCTS); and print services within Probation.
Start date: 2011-03-01
End date: 2017-11-30
Schedule text: The FITs programme is complex with elements being delivered at different points of the life cycle in sequence. As such the programme is in the define and refine stage, due to the scoping decision, as well as the execute stage for those services that are already transitioning. The Full Business Case is under review given the scope changes.
Baseline: £457.00m
Forecast: £457.00m
Variance: None%
Variance text: Budget variance less than 5%.
Whole Life Cost: £1,706.00m
WLCost text: Includes programme costs as well as the full anticipated cost of the new contracts, assuming a 5 year contract period. In addition, this year the submission requirements have changed and now require the addition of the value of the legacy contracts. That also applies to the 15/16 year figures shown above. The actual whole life programme cost forecast is £365m and the 15/16 forecast is £144m (including contingency).
