Description: The Electronic Monitoring Programme is set up to implement a new electronic monitoring system and a service for the day to day monitoring of subjects wearing the devices.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: Since Q2, the Electronic Monitoring Programme is progressing the programme towards Green through the following key actions: • Completing early integration testing on existing software and systems and beginning redevelopment to accommodate the new generation tags; • Completing the build of the supporting IT hardware and commissioning the production of the new tags; • Finalising and contractualising the EM Delivery Plan with suppliers; • Agreeing with stakeholders the approach to training and transition, embedding learning from the pilots; • Reviewing and updating the FBC, to include costs of change and new plan dates.
Start date: 2011-05-10
End date: 2024-08-31
Schedule text: Slippage remains the key risk on the Programme, as the Delivery Plan continues to be under threat of delay, due to Lot 1's view of the development and testing timelines. Lot 1 plans are being actively challenged and assumptions assured by workstreams. We are making progress in understanding the logic behind Lot 1's plans, which will enable us to reach consensus and produce a new delivery plan in February. The next step will be to agree inter-dependencies with the other Lots. Plans have been received from all 4 lots and are being assimilated to articulate dependencies across workstreams for all parties to formally agree and create a single plan identifying deliverables and milestones. This is scheduled for completion in line with the contract re-set timeline in February. The programme has achieved two key milestones with the signing of the Lot 3 contract (tag supplier) with G4S in November and the signing of the Interface Translation Platform (ITP, the service’s ‘interface engine’) contract with Capita in December, hence enabling ITP implementation to commence. The Programme is on track to end commercial negotiations in early spring 2018. All quality gates are aligned to key delivery milestones, and have been included in the Programme delivery plan. Preparation work has started for Quality Gate 0 (Programme Restart), which is scheduled to take place in March. Work is underway to confirm that the required controls and a thorough approval route is in place to maximise the chance of successful programme delivery, in line with contract re-set. The aim is to complete all Quality Gate activies by the first week of March 2018, in line with the baselined delivery plan.
Baseline: £79.30m
Forecast: £74.03m
Variance: -7.00%
Variance text: The 2017 EM Full Business Case rebaselined the Programme, which set the new service go live date at September 2018. Due to delays to the Programme driven by the General Election and changes in the scope of the Programme, the rebaselined plan moved the Go Live date to April 2019. This is being reviewed and will be re-baselined, once contract re-set is complete. The spend profile for the Programme will be reprofiled accordingly across financial years.
Whole Life Cost: £580.50m
WLCost text: The 2017 FBC is based on historic contract prices and the reset of the contracts and new prices will impact the baseline. This will also prompt an update to the FBC. This activity has a dependency on contract reset, which is expected to complete in early 2018.
