To ask the Secretary of State for Justice which individual was responsible for the C-NOMIS database project up until October 2007. (300955)

There were two senior responsible owners of the C-NOMIS project up until October 2007, who had overall responsibility: initially, Christine Knott and then Roger Hill.

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what financial management and oversight there was in respect of the C-NOMIS database project up to October 2007. (300956)

The C-NOMIS project board met at least once every two months. It was recognised that strengthened financial control and management was required, and a dedicated finance manager was recruited at the end of 2006. He undertook a review of all project costs which culminated in the recognition by summer 2007 that costs were unaffordable.

The revised NOMIS programme which replaced the C-NOMIS project has adopted a fit-for-purpose governance and monitoring structure and financial controls.
