Description: The Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 introduced Secure Training Orders (STO) which enabled the courts to sentence persistent offenders aged 12-14 to custody within ‘Secure Training Centres’. When the legislation was passed in 1994, the Home Office had responsibility for commissioning secure accommodation for young people and commissioned a programme of work to develop four new Secure Training Centres (STCs) via Private Finance Initiative (PFI) contracts. The STCs became operational during 1998 and 1999, and the 15 year PFI contracts are due to expire in 2013 and 2014 respectively; the fourth expires in 2029 and does not form part of this procurement exercise. The objective of this programme is to deliver contracts to operate the STC provision due to expire in 2013 and 2014, that are more cost efficient and better meet the individual needs of young people placed into custody there. Efficiencies will be realised through open competition of the service provision and removal of some overly prescriptive elements of the legislative operating framework; others are expected from better alignment of service specifications with our partner commissioners, which will additionally enable improved services to young people.

DCA text: Following MPA assurance of the STC programme in July 2012, 11 recommendations were made to the SRO to ensure the programme remained on track to successfully deliver it's objectives. Each of these recommendations have now been addressed in full. However, despite the progress made, we await the outcome of the consultation on the government's Green Paper, Transforming Youth Custody, before we progress the programme to the next stage.

Baseline: £0.55m

Variance text:
Whole Life Cost: £336.16m
WLCost text: The figure for the programme is £336mil un-discounted, based on a maximum contract length of 10 years. This is the current estimated cost of the preferred option in the Outline Business Case. It is envisaged that the demand for the service and the exact scope will be analysed further and refined during the competitive process so at this point this in an indicative figure.
