Description: The Common Platform Programme aims to deliver a technology platform which supports business transformation across the Crown Prosecution Service and HMCTS
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: A recent IPA Assurance Review reported the programme has made positive progress since the challenging re-sets that took place in 2015; meaning the delivery confidence rating moved to amber. This reflects the strong response to a number of recommendations made; the continual growth in agile maturity; ensuring the right capability and capacity to deliver; and, the efforts to improve pace of delivery since the previous report. The Programme continues to receive support from all three current SROs. Despite a moderate increase in pace of delivery, further increases would be required for the Programme to deliver the full extent of its agreed scope within its lifetime and budget. The Programme continues to develop its benefits realisation strategy to ensure deliverables are aligned to business value and is closely managed by the Programme Board.
Start date: 2012-11-01
End date: 2019-03-29
Schedule text: The Programme continues to progress and a number of services have been delivered. The Rota Service, which allows Magistrates to manage their own availability for court sittings online, has been successfully rolled out, with over 95% of Magistrates actively using the system. The Online Plea Service, which allows defendants to enter pleas online (for summary non-imprisonable motoring offences), has been implemented across the majority of sites. Digital Mark Up, which allows results to be captured digitally in court, continues to be iterated and tested in a live court environment ahead of national rollout.
Baseline: £92.74m
Forecast: £73.11m
Variance: -21.00%
Variance text: The in year variance relates to reduced Hosting and Support requirement, release of contingency funding and a reduced Interfaces specification to the legacy systems.
Whole Life Cost: £380.89m
WLCost text: The whole life costs include both the cost to deliver the project and also the ongoing operating costs of the new service. The whole life cost is £15m lower than the baseline due to a reduction in VED's requirement. This will be incorporated as part of the refresh. The whole life costs for the project will be revised in line with the refreshed business case for FY1718.
