1.0 Healthcheck Review Conclusion
Delivery Confidence Assessment: AMBER/RED
The Review Team finds that the Delivery Confidence Assessment for the programme is confirmed as Amber-Red. Please see 'Conclusions of the AAP' at Part 3.
The Delivery Confidence Assessment RAG status uses the definitions below:
Criteria Description: Successful delivery of the project to time, cost and quality appears highly likely and there are no major outstanding issues that at this stage appear to threaten delivery.
Criteria Description: Successful delivery appears probable. However, constant attention will be needed to ensure risks do not materialise into major issues threatening delivery.
Criteria Description: Successful delivery appears feasible but significant issues already exist requiring management attention. These appear resolvable at this stage and, if addressed promptly, should not present a cost/schedule overrun.
Criteria Description: Successful delivery of the project is in doubt with major risks or issues apparent in a number of key areas. Urgent action is needed to ensure these are addressed, and establish whether resolution is feasible.
Criteria Description: Successful delivery of the project appears to be unachievable. There are major issues which, at this stage, do not appear to be manageable or resolvable. The project may need re-base lining and/or overall viability re-assessed.
