Description: The Priority School Building Programme One (PSPB1) is meeting the condition need of the school buildings in the very worst condition across the country. PSBP1 Capital will rebuild and/or refurbish 214 schools through capital grant with the vast majority of schools expected to be handed over by the end of 2017, two years earlier than originally announced. To ensure value for money for the public sector, schools are grouped together to make projects (or batches) that will be commercially attractive and drive strong competition. This grouping of projects also allows us to take advantage of economies in procurement in terms of both time and cost. PSBP1 Capital has 68 schools worth over £10m of which 67 have their design and build contracts awarded. The future pipeline of projects, determining requirements on steel sourcing, have been signalled to the market pre-procurement. This gives potential bidders sufficient time to prepare for competitive bidding under ESFA frameworks; alternative frameworks and OJEU procurements.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Green
DCA text: A number of external factors continue to impact the programme, the most significant being the recovery of the construction market. We continue to experience a lack of interest from contractors in the new batches of schools being released into procurement and contractors continue to seek additional funding. This has resulted in delays against our internal delivery programme, expenditure slipping backwards and an increase in the overall cost to deliver the programme.
Start date: 2011-07-19
End date: 2021-09-19
Schedule text: PSBP1 has met the target of delivering the majority of its schemes by Dec-17 as anticipated.
Baseline: £381.85m
Forecast: £319.29m
Variance: -16.00%
Variance text: PSBP1 is heading towards the final stages of the programme and the schemes with contracts awarded over the last few months and those still awaiting financial close are the more problematic schemes. This has led to inevitable slippage and has impacted the delivery profile. Since then, the programme has delivered the majority of its schemes by 31st December 2017.
Whole Life Cost: £2,313.79m
WLCost text: Initial capital investment to address the poor condition of school buildings will avoid significant future costs to deal with a deteriorating estate and help to avoid any incidences of basic need pressure created through obsolescence.
