DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The Amber delivery confidence assessment reflected the good progress being made in many areas of the programme, including the handover of the support building – allowing training for the prison officers to begin. However there remained challenges to ensure the prison was ready to open smoothly in February 2017, including actively managing the handover dates with the constructor, ensuring they do not move, and sequencing delivery of IT. Since then, the remaining buildings within section have been successfully delivered. The prison opened to time on 27 February and the team are now focussed on opening up the rest of the accomodation.
