DCA (RAG) Amber/Red
DCA text: The IPA Delivery Confidence Assessment (DCA) rating at Q2 1920 (30th September 2019) was Amber/Red, which has not changed since last year's Q2 1819 Amber/Red, due primarily to the following factors; - A continued lack of project resources, particularly skilled technical resources has continually delayed delivery Since the Q2 1920 (30th September 2019) Amber/Red IPA DCA, the following non-project operating environment activities have impacted the original Q2 IPA DCA; - The programme has not resourced for a successful and timely delivery.. Consequently the schedule for delivery of Secret and Overseas has slipped month on month for the last 18 months. - The MOD and contractor teams are in general located in different parts of the country. This prevents good working relationships and a lack of joint planning Since the Q2 1920 (30th September 2019) Amber/Red IPA DCA, the following primary project actions have impacted the original Q2 IPA DCA; - The SRO with MOD CIO have worked with Cabinet Office Crown Commercial representatives to improve performance including securing agreement to add additional resources. The additional resources have now started to come on stream and some improvements are being seen. Some early users have been migrated to the MODNET(S) service and the Alpha phases of the Windows 10 project have started. - Joint planning and delivery of COVID19 mitigations has improved joint working

Schedule text The scheduled baseline project end date at Q2 1920 (30th September 2019) is 31/03/22, has lengthened by 1487 days since last year's Q2 1819 date of 05/03/18, due primarily to the following factors; - A two year extension period for exit and transition into the New MODNET Evolve contracts was approved by MOD, Treasury and Cabinet Office in Aug 2019. Contract exit is now March 22. - MODNET Evolve Contracting period has taken longer than originally planned due to a lack of resources and unclear requirements. This issues have now been resolved and plans are in place to transition to the new services. There remains a risk that all services may not be delivered by Mar 22 and action may need to be taken to extend the current arrangements. A decision will be taken by Dec 20. Since the Q2 1920 (30th September 2019) baseline project end date of 31/03/22, the following non-project operating environment activities have impacted the original Q2 baseline project end date; - Covid19 may affect project end date of 31.3.22.
