Description: NHSBSA ITIS Programme is implementing a new IT Operating Model with a mix of internal and external supplier towers and a strengthened retained IT Organisation, that will replace the infrastructure managed service contract currently provided by Capita. The programme will be responsible for the transition of over 100 critical NHS Back office systems handling payments of over £34billion per annum on behalf of the NHS. This transition will include the implementation of new services with new suppliers, growth of new internal ICT capabilities, and the safe migration of all 100+ critical applications to new hosting arrangements to Crown Hosting Datacentres or Cloud Hosting. ?
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: The programme continues to make progress on a range of fronts. The work of the SRO has been supported by the creation of three Project executive roles, reducing the time required of the SRO but increasing the overall senior leadership and oversight. The contracts for the Managed Infrastructure Services (MIS) and networks (WAN/LAN) have been signed and the contractors are in mobilisation phase. The procurement of a Telephony provider is approaching completion. Emerging risks around the Service Integration and Management (SIAM) delivery have been mitigated by the procurement of external expertise which supplements our in-house service. Agreement has been reached with Capita, and detailed plans are being developed as the new suppliers are contracted. There are still significant challenges to delivery but Q2 has seen a significant reduction in the overall risk to the programme
