3. Indicator of Progress of Overall Delivery
The Indicator of Progress of Overall Delivery (IPOD) provides a high-level measurement of Scottish Water's progress in delivering the Committed List for projects over £1m. It assesses the progress of these investment projects monitored across 3 delivery gates combining this information to give an overall score.
When projects are added to the Committed List, each milestone is allocated 1 point. Each quarter, the number of points achieved by reaching gates is assessed against the baseline2 level for the previous quarter (lower limit) and the subsequent quarter (upper limit). These points are shown as absolute scores. Scottish Water is considered to be within the range where the number of points gained lies within the lower and upper limits.
At the end of March 2023, Scottish Water's IPOD position was back on track at 609 points, against a range of 564 to 683 points (Figure 1).
The green line in the figure above shows the aggregate of the forecast dates in the Committed List (the baseline). The solid blue bars show Scottish Water's actual position, and the light blue bars show the forecast position for future months. The green area above shows the + or – 3 months target range (i.e., the baseline from the previous and subsequent quarters respectively). Being above this shows that Scottish Water is more than 3 months ahead of the baseline and being below this shows that Scottish water is more than 3 months behind the baseline.
Figures 2, 3 and 4 below show the IPOD position at Q4 2022/2023 by individual milestone
IPOD – Start On Site
33 projects started on site during Q4 with performance on the Start On Site (SOS) milestone being in the top half of the range at 145 points against a range of 108 to 151 points.
IPOD – Acceptance
38 projects achieved acceptance during Q4, bringing the total number of completed projects delivering benefit for customers to 233 which is outwith the forecast range of 247 to 272. 17 projects that have not yet had acceptance signed off are now substantially complete and are forecasting acceptance in Q1, with a further 8 forecasting acceptance in Q2. Explanation of this movement can be found in Sections 4 & 5. Full details of the projects on the water and wastewater portfolios are now shared regularly with DWQR and SEPA.
IPOD – Financial Completion
54 projects achieved financial completion during Q4. 231 points were achieved to date with the target range being 209 to 260 points.
