Description: To improve the efficiency and effectiveness of corporate service delivery in the MOD, through the creation of a Defence Business Services (DBS) organisation and strengthening the role of relevant process owners, in line with best practice. This has included the appointment of a contractor to manage DBS. The programme arose out of the report on "Civilians in Defence' commissioned by the Secretary of State in January 2010 and submitted by Mr Gerry Grimstone in July 2010. The corporate services currently in scope include civilian HR, finance, information services, vetting, audit, commercial and potentially military HR
DCA (RAG): Amber/Green
DCA text: The programme is hitting its milestones, its commercial partnership arrangement is effective, it is within budget and will deliver substantial cash savings. The GREEN/AMBER rating reflects challenges surrounding resourcing of the programme, governance arrangements and benefits management. A strategy is being developed for the future provision of corporate services which will include proposals for an improved programme governance structure. Actions are in hand to address the need for additional resources in the programme team and to improve programme management processes, particularly benefits management.
Start date: 2010-07-01
End date: 2016-12-01
Schedule text: The creation of DBS and the appointment of the DBS management contractor were later than planned; this did not adversely impact the delivery of financial benefits, which are being realised ahead of schedule by DBS.
Baseline: £7.40m
Forecast: £9.01m
Variance: 21.76%
Variance text: The cost variance in 12/13 is largely attributable to increased DBS management contract fees, which reflect and are more than balanced by anticipated savings under the contract (the fees are determined by the savings achieved).
Whole Life Cost: £38.40m
WLCost text: Across the life of the programme, an overspend of approximately £2M is forecast, reflecting the earlier than planned delivery of financial benefits (which outweigh the increased costs).
