Description: The strategic objective of the Compliance for the Future (CftF) programme is to enable HMRC to transform its Compliance business and meet the compliance challenge set out in the SR15 settlement by maintaining the compliance revenue baseline at lower cost. The programme contributes efficiencies to maintaining the compliance revenue baseline and thereby helping ensure that the additional revenue to which the Department is also committed (£5bn a year by 2019-20) is truly ‘additional’.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: Overall RAG status for the Programme has improved to Amber. Key decision points reached included approval for the business and technical design via presentation of the Business Case (SOC) to HMRC's Investment and Design Board (IDB) securing funding approval to continue key activities in 2017/18. The Programme underwent a Project Assessment Review (PAR) which gave a Delivery Confidence Assessment of Amber. The PAR will be followed by a 'less formal' Treasury Approval Point (TAP) and we will work towards re-submission of Programme Business Case with a clearer view on the Compliance Strategy and options for 2018/19 delivery. Work will continue with Customer Compliance Group (CCG), Solicitor's Office and Legal Services (SOLS) and Chief Digital Information Officer (CDIO) on prioritising, refining requirements and developing the delivery plan for 2018/19. A full TAP will follow re-submission of the Business Case. The Programme Director recently took over the role of Programme Director for the Making Tax Digital for Individuals (MTDI) Programme as well as her present responsibilities for CftF. This is a real opportunity to build on the synergies between our digital ambition with our customers and our ambition for transforming compliance of which CftF is a part. Two Delivery pipeline Deputy Directors have now been appointed to the Programme, which completes CftF SLT structure.
Start date: 2016-04-01
End date: 2021-03-31
Schedule text: The programme is currently completing the Design phase with options for delivery under consideration by investment design board in May. As part of the Option Appraisal a 3 year and 5 year delivery were considered, the 3 year plan delivering the capabilities within the SR Period as well as achieving the efficiency challenge. However it is recognised that as part of our ongoing transformation prioritisation process a 5 year plan may be the most affordable option so this is the preferred option. The programme Economic Case describes the forecast of how the programme activities will aim to deliver the £171m SR15 requirements by 2020/21 (Project End Date) and further benefits beyond that point. CftF will consist of a number of projects, built around four key capabilities; all to be delivered by March 2021.
