To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, by what date his Department plans to deliver the strategic (IT) gateway; and what the reasons are for delay.
Answer (Mr Sam Gyimah)
The Strategic Partner Gateway (SPG) has been available since September 2016, providing secure data exchange capability between nDelius and CRCs own offender case management systems once they are ready.
There was a delay in implementing the SPG which was originally expected to be in place in the second quarter of 2015. This was due to extra work required on technical data exchange requirements, and design changes as a result of additional business processes that had been identified.
The CRCs do not yet have their own case management systems in service. Following extensive testing and accreditation, the first anticipated cutover to a CRC’s own system and the SPG is currently planned to take place by early autumn 2017.
