Description: NHSBSA (National Health Service Business Services Authority) IT Infrastructure Sourcing Programme is implementing a new IT Operating Model with a mix of internal and external supplier towers and a strengthened retained IT Organisation, that will replace the infrastructure managed service contract currently provided by Capita. The programme will be responsible for the transition of over 100 critical NHS Back office systems handling payments of over £34billion per annum on behalf of the NHS. This transition will include the implementation of new services with new suppliers, growth of new internal ICT capabilities, and the safe migration of all 100+ critical applications to new hosting arrangements to Crown Hosting Datacentres or Cloud Hosting. ___
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: IPA have acknowledged that business case approval delays resulting from Purdah have affected delivery trajectory. Infrastructure and Network Services procurements are underway and following earlier soft market testing there are an number of active suppliers still engaged in both procurement exercises. The project will work closely with suppliers to minimise delays and seek to deliver services earlier.
Start date: 2013-12-01
End date: 2019-06-30
Schedule text: Due to Purdah, there has been an 11 week delay in gaining Outline Business Case approval followed by an additional 4 week delay to allow more time for Networks suppliers to bid. However, the overall impact on the final transition within the programme has been contained to 6 weeks, subject to a successful Network procurement.
Baseline: £20.80m
Forecast: £15.90m
Variance: -24.00%
Variance text: The baseline is in accordance with the approved Outline Business Case, forecasts have been re-profiled to reflect the current position as reported to the Programme Board. The baseline and the forecast are both based on estimates of supplier costs which will only be properly defined during Q3 and Q4 when the supplier bids are received and reviewed.
Whole Life Cost: £126.71m
WLCost text: Although there is forecast to be cost slippage between 2017/18 and 2018/19 the impact of this is being assessed and, in part, is dependent on the analysis of the supplier bids received in Q3 and Q4. Mitigations are proposed for reducing the expenditure in 2018/19 that do not impact the delivery of the programme and these will be viewed alongside the impact of the supplier bids to set a financially stable course of action.
