Description: To provide a new modernisation release for Barring and Disclosure that will unify operations, introduce electronic applications and referrals, and enable new services such as Basics and Barred List Checks.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: IPA RAG rating reflects the commercial difficulties encountered in delivering the Disclosure release. As a result DBS has informed (Tata Consultancy Services) TCS in September 2018 that the Disclosure release would present unacceptable risk to DBS and the TCS contract partially terminated as a result. Approval has been given by Home Office, Cabinet Office and Treasury to procure new suppliers to replace TCS and provide a period of stability for the DBS service. Subsequently the programme has been granted formal approval to close in May 2019.
Start date: 2010-12-29
End date: 2019-12-31
Schedule text: Implementation of the Disclosure release of the Release 1 Programme has been cancelled, through formal partial termination of the TCS contract (see section on IPA RAG narrative above), and therefore there are no remaining R1 elements of the DBS Business Case.
Baseline: £110.40m
Forecast: £172.00m
Variance: 56.00%
Variance text: Higher activity levels impacted RDEL costs during 2018/19 which were not originally forecast in the Full Business Case (FBC) in 2014, however this cost is off-set by additional income received during the financial year.
Whole Life Cost: £785.70m
WLCost text: Corporate activity levels and disclosure volumes are higher than originally planned which has increased costs. However, these are fully funded by increased income from product charges.
