Description: The aim of the Common Platform Programme (CPP) is to support business transformation across Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and Her Majesties Courts and Tribunal Services (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 Criminal Justice System (CJS) (and in time across other justice jurisdictions), from initial capture of information through charge, in-court presentation of evidence, verdict, sentence and subsequent enforcement action. The objectives are: • 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, • 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 Delivery Confidence rating reflects the scale and complexity of the Programme and the need to change the approach to an agile development methodology. In response, the delivery approach needs to be developed and agreed with all stakeholders. Particular areas of focus were: • The need for clear agreement of the way forward, • Streamlining the governance as part of the HMCTS Reform Programme including clear delegations, • Formal agreement of a Business Case. The Business Case is progressing through governance and there is good engagement with all key stakeholders.
