DCA (RAG): Amber/Green
DCA text: The Programme has moved from an 'Amber' RAG status by the IPA in 2016 to an 'Amber-Green' one in 2017, reflecting the substantial progress made by the Programme over the last year.
Start date: 2013-09-01
End date: 2018-12-31
Schedule text: The Programme has continued to make good progress with all core components of the system now underway and in the delivery pipeline. The Programme has now implemented the system to its Full Business Case partners as well as consuming a number of new Brexit-driven Partners. The overall risks around technology development timelines continues to reduce but challenges remain around enhanced roll-out to multiple new partners to time. The Programme agreed with the IPA in autumn 2017 that end March 2019 is an achievable target date for Programme closure. The Service Organisation is well established and is increasingly picking up work transitioning from the Programme. The Target Operating Model aims to deliver significant Programme transition to the DfID organisation managing the Service through 2018.
Baseline: £27.60m

Variance: 20.00%
Variance text: Higher forecast for 17/18 now identified as a result of provisioning more of the system to new partners, but not at the Cabinet Office's expense
Whole Life Cost: £174.30m
WLCost text: Whole Life Costs refer to the costs of maintaining an enduring Service (including the FOXHOUND Programme element). Forecast costs have varied historically whilst the full solution has still been in development.
