National Offender Management Service

Volume 455: debated on Wednesday 10 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the detailed business case for the National Offender Management Scheme will be published; and what the differences are between that business case and the strategic business case published on 20 October 2005. (113571)

[holding answer 8 January 2007]: The strategic business case sets out the strategic case for change for NOMS. This is backed up by further documents which have subsequently been published and which were referred to in my written answer to the hon. Member of 4 January, printed on 8 January 2007, Official Report, column 150W.

We have developed the strategic business case into a more detailed document for the purposes of managing the change programme. This is in line with best practice guidance from the Office of Government Commerce. The more detailed document, which is constantly updated as the programme develops, is an internal management tool and is not being published at present.
