DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: Final working arrangements for the phase 1 Joint Delivery Team are currently being worked through. A new organisational structure for the Programmes Directorate in GPA came into effect on 1 August 2017 and there has been a distinct shift in the focus of work to encompass a wider portfolio of programmes within the Directorate. Ann Carter-Gray continues to act as SRO and Programme Director. GPA are conducting an internal challenge session to review the programme plan for Phase 2 projects. ensuring those projects that deliver the greatest benefits are given the most priority. Key risk areas include a dip in engagement from Departments - mitigated by programme directors presence on DWP and HMRC programme boards, MGER commitment to the programme, continual engagement at the Customer Board. The Lack of commitment by occupiers to Smart Working - mitigated by cross-government Smart Working Policy (PAS3000). Cross-government delivery board agreement received for the smart working programme strategy making smart working a discrete programme separate to the hubs programme. The Disclosure of commercial information prejudicing negotiation position - mitigated by firm control of documentation and information, NDAs and media handling strategy."

WLCost text: The scope of our PBC has changed dramatically since the last year return (and has been now approved by HMT). Previously all government hubs (both GPA led and HMRC led) had been included in our PBC and therefore in our GMPP return, since then following conversations with HMRC we have stripped out the costs of the HMRC led hubs. This was agreed with HMRC/HMT/IPA as to avoid any potential double counting in costs/benefits. The new PBC & GMPP includes only costs and benefits associated with the GPA led hubs. HM Treasury approved a change in the scope of the programme business case (PBC). Previously it included all government hubs. Now it relates only to the costs for GPA-led hubs as the costs of HMRC hubs are included in the Building Our Future Locations PBC. This removes the risk of double counting.
