Description: The National Law Enforcement Data Programme (NLEDP) aims to replace the current Police National Computer (PNC) and Police National Database (PND) systems with one modernised solution: the Law Enforcement Data Service (LEDS).
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: An independent review rated the programme Red last May. A subsequent action plan was published in June to address the non-conformities. This includes weekly Programme Director meetings and the initiation of a number of assurance activities across the programme from an assessment of the build work to date, the current baseline of the programme (including governance and controls), and a review of the estimates for full delivery of the programme. The Programme is conducting a detailed review of its delivery approach and the Programme structure required to deliver its objectives and deliver efficiency savings. This work will drive revisions to the current Programme plan, business case and resource profile. The business case is being revised in light of the above and indications are that the NPV will remain positive compared to the 'do minimum' approach.
Start date: 2014-04-01
End date: 2020-03-31
Schedule text: The Programme has agreed a series of recommendations to address affordability and deliverability challenges. It is working through them in advance of a reassessment. The Programme will ensure that essential enabling work will continue but other development work and supporting workstream activity may be subject to changes to scope and timescale based on the revised priorities. If the Programme changes its delivery approach to fit funding constraints, longer term delivery dates may move significantly.
Baseline: £67.50m
Forecast: £82.10m
Variance: 22.00%
Variance text: The Baseline was agreed in 2017. The forecast represents an update to the business case in 2018 in response to scope increases and additional build costs following the completion of the functional analysis of the current systems. The Programme's replanning activity continues to ensure that delivery in-year is within this envelope.
Whole Life Cost: £469.40m
WLCost text: The combined future Programme and LEDS run costs (excluding inflation but including optimism bias) totals £373m to the end of FY30/31 (this figure excludes PNC and PND run costs for the investment appraisal period). This is a substantial investment but is far less than the comparative cost of maintaining the current systems, at a total cost of £594m over the same period. This is before additional benefits from the new system are considered. Ongoing replanning work may change these figures, as both the planned approach and the forecast costs of maintaining the current systems are under review. However, such is the delta between the two options that it would require a seismic shift in delivery cost to change the economic viability of the Programme.
