Description: The Central Payment System (CPS) provides the Department with a fully integrated payment and accounting solution. It has brought significant improvements in the level of customer service, delivered the flexibility needed to support future methods of payment; and will provide opportunities to identify instances of fraud and official error. It has also introduced significantly higher levels of resilience to our business, reduced dependency on aged systems, and delivered a flexible platform to meet future business needs.
DCA (RAG): Green
DCA text: The system completed a successful rollout in August 2012 and is now well established as a critical component of live operations, routinely processing and accounting for more than 13 million payments each week. Work is underway to address points raised by the MPA about the monitoring of benefits post-Programme closure, and how lessons learned during the Programme, including successes and good practice, were communicated across the Department. A follow up review is planned in the second half of 2014.
