To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how much has been spent on his Department’s Offender Management computer scheme. (203711)

The NOMIS Programme has been funded by the Ministry of Justice since its formation and prior to that by the Home Office. The total expenditure to the end of April 2008 is estimated at £193 million, of which £125 million was expensed in 2006/07 and earlier years. The newly revised CNOMIS Programme' to improve the sharing of vital information between public prisons and probation areas, and support the much needed replacement of at-risk IT systems will ensure both the protection of the public and the continued successful implementation of the Offender Management Model.
