Executive summary

In June 2014 DMPC approved the funding of up to £3.5m to fund the agile scrum teams to continue to deliver the Total Technology Programme. This was subject to phased funding upon delivery of outcomes and regular and intrusive reviews every 4-6 weeks. Regular approvals have increased the total funding to £7.1m to end April 2015.
The MPS are now seeking approval for a further increase of funding of £1.651m to allow the continuing of the agile scrum teams until July 2015. This will bring the total approved funding to £8.7m.

Recommendation

The DMPC is asked to
1. Approve the request for additional investment of £1.651m to allow the continuing of the agile scrum teams until July 2015.
2. Approve a contract variation for Capgemini services to cover the Capgemini costs within additional investment above, and
3. Note the total Agile estimated costs to end March 2016 is £10.9m.
