Departmental ICT

Volume 470: debated on Tuesday 15 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice on what date each IT system or systems replacing those that are redundant or not fit for purpose within the GNOMIS system will be operational; and how much each replacement or adapted system is expected to cost. (179141)

There are no redundant or not fit for purpose IT systems or systems within the NOMIS programme. GNOMIS is not a name recognised within the programme. C-NOMIS is now going to be limited to use within HMPS, rather than also including use within NPS. This has had minimal impact on the C-NOMIS software requirements. Commercial negotiations for this programme are on-going; therefore we are currently unable to reveal detailed costings of the individual elements of the overall programme.

Following on from commercial negotiations, detailed and assured delivery plans that reflect the new approach and ensure constituent projects are delivered effectively to prisons and probation areas will be available from the spring.
