Description: The Prison Unit Cost Programme (PUCP) aims to maximise the delivery of savings from public sector prisons over the three years (to March 2016) by reducing operating costs and supporting the safety, security, and decency of public prisons within the agreed specifications.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: Both the prison benchmark and facilities management projects continue to actively manage the transition to business as usual despite the challenging prison environment. The programme and project Senior Responsible Owners (SROs) remain confident that the majority of the planned savings will be delivered by March 2016 although there remain concerns that the wider benefits of implementing cultural change and new ways of working in prisons may not be fully completed by then.
Start date: 2012-11-20
End date: 2016-12-01
Schedule text: Both the prison benchmark and facilities management projects continue to actively manage the transition to business as usual. The level of achievement and sustainability of the benchmark will be assessed at the end of March 2016 when the available evidence will be reviewed.
Baseline: £30.50m
Forecast: £23.30m
Variance: -23.61%
Variance text: Almost all of the 2015/16 variance is as a result of a lower than planned Voluntary Early Departure Scheme (VEDS) requirement. This is due to levels of recruitment being lower than planned, therefore fewer exits were required.
Whole Life Cost: £119.50m
WLCost text: Whole life costs represent the one-off programme costs across the 3 years of the programme from 2013/14 to 2016/17. Costs presented exclude the contract costs of the new Facilities Management Services contract which was delivered as part of the Competing Delivery Services (CDS) workstrand. The service commencement date of the CDS contract was June 2015, the contract is let for 5 years until 2020/21 with a steady state cost of c£86m which replaces in-house provision.
