Description: The Transforming Prisoner Telephony (TPT) Programme aims to secure continuity of the current telephony service by negotiating a suitable extension, exit and transition arrangement with BT; procure and rollout a new data and cabling network and award a new service concession to providing in-cell prisoner telephony and potentially a range of basic self service functionality.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: Since the last Government Major Projects Portfolio (GMPP) return, and based on the most recent Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA) Gateway 2 assessment, the delivery confidence of the Programme has improved.The primary reason for this improved assessment by IPA was the significant progress that had been made in resolving the exit and transition arrangements for the current BT prison telephony contract. As a result, the review team were satisfied that this no longer represented a significant risk to the programme.
Start date: 2015-02-01
End date: 2020-03-31
Schedule text: Contract negotiations have been successfully concluded with BT. The programme is now addressing the next strand of the programme, the installation of data cabling in public sector prisons. This is a pre-requisite for the final strand of the programme, the provision of in-cell telephony and additional services. The data cabling will be installed on a phased basis, allowing lessons to be learned about the physical difficulty of installing data cabling into prisons, and the operational complexity of moving prisoners around to accommodate the work. The lessons learned from each phase will inform the next.
