Description: • Providing reliable, resilient and easy to use technology across our global network. • Enabling mobile and flexible working, ‘Official’ where possible, ‘Official-Sensitive’ where really necessary. • Providing customer interaction and service provisions which are digital by default, delivering information and knowledge management capabilities, encouraging innovation and a culture of working together.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: Part 1 of the Programme FBC approved by HMT/CO. Device deployment approach agreed with key suppliers. Renewed focus on business transformation including additional resources for Learning and Development, Engagement and Communications teams. We are working to mitigate our top risks that relate to delivering the business need of enduring cultural and behavioural change, overall affordability, potential postponement of software deployment caused by delays to required IT infrastructure changes, and the delivery complexity of the Devices project and its effect on timelines.
Start date: 2015-11-01
End date: 2018-03-31
Schedule text: Deployment of Devices (Laptops and Desktops) will start later than planned. Accelerated deployment plan will see programme complete overseas deployment in 9 months rather than 18.
Baseline: £38.00m
Forecast: £29.60m
Variance: -22.00%
Variance text: The commercial process has taken longer than planned which has meant a reprofiling of approx £8m from 2016/17 to 2017/18. This does not impact delivery although it does have an impact on NPV.
Whole Life Cost: £105.40m
WLCost text: In December 2015 the FCO Board of Management approved the full scope of Tech Overhaul and a budget envelope of £105.5m. The overall cost of the Programme has not changed.
