Description: • Transformation: The FCO has committed through its corporate objectives to: “Transform the FCO’s ‘Official’ technology and deliver the flexible, reliable and modern tools our staff need to do their jobs” whilst “harnessing digital technology to transform the way that they work”. Tech Overhaul is the transformation programme engineered to meet these objectives by: • Providing reliable, resilient and easy to use technology across our global network • Enabling mobile and flexible working at ‘Official’ where possible, ‘Official-Sensitive’ where necessary • Providing customer interaction and service provisions which are digital by default, delivering information and knowledge management capabilities, encouraging innovation and collaboration
DCA (RAG): Amber/Green
DCA text: We have continued to focus on embedding the necessary transformational changes ahead by offering a suite of products and a range of accessible delivery methods and ensuring behavioural change is championed by FCO Directors and driven across the organisation. Work has continued on moving to the Cloud. Cloud capabilities are being delivered in phases in order to maximise early benefits realisation. Pilot activity is underway including Cloud based e-mail and One Drive. This testing is helping to inform the processes and policies in the run up to full deployment.
Start date: 2015-11-01
End date: 2018-12-31
Schedule text: Deployment of Devices on the current infrastructure started in July. The Programme is expected to complete overseas deployment in September 2018.
Baseline: £51.70m
Forecast: £58.00m
Variance: 12.00%
Variance text: Deployment started later than planned which has meant a reprofiling of approx. £17m from 2017/18 to 2018/19. This does not impact the overall cost of the Programme.
Whole Life Cost: £120.00m
WLCost text: The Full Business Case part 2, agreed by HMT and Cabinet Office in April 2017 approved the increase of budget to £120m, which was due to final contract prices being higher than originally anticipated. Current forecast puts the total at £122m (including Costed Risk of £4.1m). The programme is working to reduce this pressure over the coming months, including reducing the costed risk pot.
