National Offender Management Service Agency: Strategic and Business Plans

Volume 707: debated on Wednesday 4 February 2009


My right honourable friend the Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice (Jack Straw) has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.

I am today publishing the strategic and business plans for the National Offender Management Service (NOMS) Agency. The document sets out the strategic priorities for the agency to 2011 and the activities and targets to be achieved during 2009-10.

Copies have been made available in the Libraries of both Houses, the Vote Office and the Printed Paper Office. The document is also available on the NOMS website at

The NOMS agency was established as an executive agency of the Ministry of Justice in July 2008. It has the twin aims of protecting the public and reducing reoffending. The agency is central to the Ministry of Justice’s work to achieve better outcomes for society, to improve further the effectiveness of the criminal justice system and to ensure the delivery of efficient and effective offender management.
