Description: The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Programme is delivering a new modernisation release to unify and improve the operational service, with the introduction of electronic applications and referrals, the provision of a full strategic solution for the Update Service including for Northern Ireland, and enabling new services such as Barred List Checks. The benefits to be delivered include: • A single integrated DBS Case Record Management (CRM) system that will provide enhanced workflow and automation. • Common ways of working across the business. • More efficient and effective information sharing across the business and with our delivery partners and stakeholders. • Support for the ‘Digital by Default’ Government agenda, reducing manual and offline processes. • Implementation of an efficient, Paperless Office. • Reduction in the Cost of Operations.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: The project lead supplier has reported a delay in the completion of testing which has resulted in a decision to re-evaluate the plan to ensure that the full scope of delivery and quality levels are achieved. An Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA) review in September 2015 assigned an Amber/Red rating and the SRO and IPA agreed that re-planning was the correct course of action. This exercise has since been completed and the lead supplier is working to a revised delivery plan. A further IPA review is due to take place in January 2016.
