Description: CP&F will provide a single online end to end procurement system for all MOD procurement activity. All other processes especially paper based systems will be either replaced or subsumed.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: A number of the recommendations from the review have been addressed, but until a way forward for delivery of the sourcing solution has been determined and a potential Review Note and ICT submission agreed then the delivery confidence remains Amber/Red.
Start date: 2011-12-01
End date: 2018-03-31
Schedule text: CP&F Release 2 (Initial Operating Capability) went live in December 2016 and is now operating as Business as Usual. Given the complexity of the system cut-over and transition to the new ways of working the delivery of IOC capability has been a significant step forward for the MOD. A settlement has been reached with IBM for Release 2 Impact Notices. In line with the Programme Board decision and Information Note circulated in August 2017 the phased delivery of the remaining CP&F work packages began on the 11th September 2017 with Demand Capture and Contract Management. The affordability issue in 18/19 due to the slippage of Release 3 (R3) delivery timescales and milestone payments into 18/19 has been addressed within the TLB in relation to Demand Capture and Contract Management. A solution and plan to deliver sourcing needs to be agreed as sourcing is a critical element of the CP&F Programme and underpins delivery of the benefits. Financial challenges will need to be addressed related to affordability and potentially additional funding to deliver the remaining work packages.
Baseline: £13.50m
Forecast: £11.20m
Variance: -17.00%
Variance text: Forecast is less than budget this year due to deferral of Release 3 activity into future years. Focus is on delivering the Contract Management functionality this year, with Release 4 following later.
Whole Life Cost: £146.74m
WLCost text: Budgeted Whole Life costs include the up-front investment (demonstration and development) and then on-going support costs e.g. licence and hardware maintenance support costs over the 10 years.
