Description: GOV.UK Verify is the new way to prove who you are online and for public service providers to be assured you are who you say you are. The programme delivered a live service in May 2016, and implementing it across central government services.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The programme's status is amber. This reflects the programme's technical delivery, which was rated GREEN by the IPA review team, but also reflects the challenges in achieving the necessary user volumes to the timescales initially planned. A revised strategic approach to digital identity, and business case, have since been developed and work is ongoing to agree this revised approach.
Start date: 2012-04-01
End date: 2020-03-31
Schedule text: User volumes have been lower than forecast due to slower than anticipated digital transformation across government. Work is underway to develop cross-government agreement on the approach to digital identity in the intermediate term. The programme continues to iterate the product to ensure that it meets HMG's needs.
Baseline: £0.00m
Forecast: £0.00m
Variance: None%
Variance text: The majority of the programme’s budget (~75%) is allocated to payments for identity verification, these are driven by user volumes and commercial negotiations with suppliers. Lower than anticipated user volumes have resulted in reduced spend in 2017/18.
Whole Life Cost: £0.00m
WLCost text: The programme’s whole life costs cover the fixed costs of running the programme, and the verification and account maintenance for 25m users. The costs of identity verification are dependent on user volumes and commercial renegotiations with suppliers and contain significant uncertainties.
