Schedule text: IOC, or Release 2, was delivered on 2 December 2016. As an IS enabled change programme this has involved both technical and business change work-streams. The technical delivery has provided a stable platform and the associated business process changes (involving over 10,000 users) have worked well in some areas with residual problems persisting elsewhere due to the complexity of the acquisition system and scheme of delegation. Progress to resolve these issues is yielding improvement. Since the start of system cut-over, £6.4Bn has been paid to suppliers. In the first two months since go live 83,000 invoices, 24,000 requisitions and 23,000 purchase orders have been processed. The new system provides a material improvement to the internal control framework and the foundation for the Release 3 capability. Currently planning is on-going with the Industry Partner to determine approach and timeframe for the delivery of Release 3.
