Description: The project is retendering and mobilising a Secure Training Centre (STC) contract. The project originally started with a retender of 3 contracts for Rainsbrook, Medway and Hassockfield STCs). During the course of the project however, this was reduced to 1 contract due to a fall in demand resulting in Hassockfield STC being decommissioned and decisions made by the Secretary of State resulting in the National Offender Management Service (NOMS) being asked to take over the running of Medway STC from 1 July 2016. The remaining STC at Rainsbrook is a site of about 80 places, which accommodates 12-17 year old boys, and girls (including mothers with babies) remanded or sentenced to custody who, because of their complex needs and risks to self and others, are unsuitable for placement in other parts of the youth secure estate. The project is at the stage of transformation of a new contract with a new provider.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: Quarter 2 was assessed as Amber/Red as there were significant risks to transformation delivery caused by operational performance issues and the contractors reduced workforce. This required MTCnovo to reprioritise some of its transformation resource to deliver immediate operational improvements. The contractor successfully mobilised and new service commenced at the STC on 5 May 2016. However they inherited a depleted staff group and this affected the contractor's plans for operation and transformation of the site. In response, the contractor introduced a new recruitment and retention strategy. Further plans for improving the site have been agreed together with an extension to the transformation period. Some areas of transformation have now been delivered including changes to education, case management and other activities for young people, new staffing structures and rotas and building improvements. Other key areas of transformation, including the introduction of new operating procedures are expected to be complete by May 2017. Some areas of work, including roll out of IT for use by young people may continue after this period.
Start date: 2012-11-05
End date: 2017-05-01
Schedule text: The new service at Rainsbrook STC commenced on time on 5 May 2016. The period in which the contractor will implement most of their plans for transforming the operation of the site was increased from 6 months to a year. As a result project closure is now expected to take place during the summer of 2017. This does not affect the overall contract period.
