Description: The aim of the Common Platform Programme (CPP) is to support business transformation across CPS and HMCTS. The 'common platform' will be an integrated data store and suite of services that allows all stakeholders to access and use the same data. The shared data will be the basis for all working across the CJS (and in time across other justice jurisdictions), from initial capture of information through charge, in-court presentation of evidence, verdict and sentence and subsequent enforcement action. Benefits include: • Flexibility to respond to policy and legislative changes and HMCTS and CPS business plans. • Improving the effectiveness of HMCTS and CPS and the quality of justice outcomes. • Decision makers have the right information to ensure better outcomes • Cutting the total cost of HMCTS and CPS services. • Achieving lowest possible transaction cost. • Improving the experience of participants in the CJS (especially victims and witnesses) • Continuing to meet statutory requirements and obligations • Reducing the level of resources required from other Criminal Justice Organisations and partners • Reduced cost of IT estates including switching off legacy systems. • Minimising the need to transition legacy systems to new suppliers.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: The Programme has an Amber/Red rating. This reflects the very early stage of the programme - the programme scope, controls and business case are still under development. Therefore, successful delivery of the programme is unclear.
Start date: 2012-11-01
End date: 2017-01-31
Schedule text: Since this assessment, a great deal of work has been done to expand and clarify the vision and blueprint and to add detail to the business case. Programme controls are now in place and a number of early applications are entering pilot or are underway. The current planning work , together with the Government Digital Service and the MoJ digital team, seeks to improve the delivery of early benefits in support of the business case. The programme is currently reassessing its approach to see if milestones can be beaten through use of more agile methods, working closely with the Government Digital Service.
