C-NOMIS IT Project

Volume 454: debated on Tuesday 5 December 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if the C-NOMIS IT project is (a) on budget and (b) on schedule. (101492)

The C-NOMIS project is currently on schedule to meet its next milestone, to implement its first release in the HM Prison Service designated early adopter, HMP Albany on 10 December 2006.

The final decision to go live in Albany will be taken by the NOMIS Programme Board on 6 December 2006 on the basis of the outcome of the User Acceptance Test and the operational readiness of the prison to accept implementation.

Progress on further releases and implementation is the subject of a detailed review planned to report by the end of January 2007. This will be considered along with any feedback from implementation in HMP Albany to finalise the way forward and timing.

The project is currently within allocated funds. The business case for the project is regularly reviewed and more than meets the criteria for return on the investment proposed.
