Description: The objectives of the Blythe House Programme are to ensure that: 1) Blythe House is put to its most efficient and effective use in order to deliver maximum value for money 2) The Blythe House museums are able to care for their collections in the most efficient and effective way
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The Amber DCA recognises that the Programme is dealing with multiple projects of variable pace and levels of risk in relation to their individual storage construction solutions. A staged approval process has seen the Science Museum Group's FBC receive HMT approval in June 2018, followed by approval for the British Museum's and V&A's FBCs by Q1 2019/20.
Start date: 2015-11-25
End date: 2023-03-31
Schedule text: The construction of new storage facilities and preparation for the removal of collections from Blythe House are on track, with the Science Museum Group, British Museum and V&A all receiving Treasury approval for their projects' Full Business Cases by Q1 of 2019/20.
Baseline: £88.75m
Forecast: £23.50m
Variance: -74.00%
Variance text: The baseline figure reflects the original spending profile agreed at the 2015 Spending Review, which was provisional, because the museums had not yet completed their OBCs. With the development of options appraisals and business cases, the profile of expenditure has become clearer, with the majority of construction expenditure now falling in 2019/20 rather than 2018/19. The revised profile was submitted to HM Treasury and agreed as part of the Supplementary Estimates process in February 2019.
Whole Life Cost: £338.00m
WLCost text: The whole life cost total baseline is from the Programme Business Case approved by HM Treasury in June 2016. This will be updated following the successful progression of component project FBCs through the Treasury Approval Point.
