DCA (RAG): Red
DCA text: In the light of continuing challenges with some of the authority projects and subsequent evidence of further slippage from the main suppliers, work has started on a full scale programme re-plan. The aim is to complete the re-plan, engage in commercial renegotiations and recalculate the Full Business Case (FBC) numbers by late September 2018
Start date: 2011-06-01
End date: 2020-12-31
Schedule text: The Programme is working to clarify with confidence when ESN will be Service Ready and Transition can start. The Mobilisation phase of the Programme has been extended by 9 months following completion of CR110. The next phase, Transition, was due to commence in June 2018 but further supplier slippage is likely. We have been working with Business Change Leads and Senior Service Users to understand the impacts of delay to Transition. The Programme re-planning exercise will determine the financial impact on Mobilisation, Transition and Airwave extensions beyond the current planned National Shutdown Date (NSD) of 31 December 2019.
