Baseline: £62.28m
Forecast: £61.06m
Variance: -2.00%
Variance text: Budget variance less than 5%
Whole Life Cost: £640.44m
WLCost text: As at 30/09/17 the total whole life implementation costs are forecast to be £634m, reflecting a reduction from the Allocated Budget of £640m. This reduction is driven by the removal of CMO costs in years 1 & 2 as these did not form part of the Main Gate Business Case. Forecast net benefits over the 13 Year appraisal period of £275m reflect a reduction on the Target net benefits of £348m. This has been impacted by the IS technical challenge explained above and reduced demand for Global Removals and Movement Services.
