star this property answer text <p>The CPS is fully aligned with the Government Commercial Function paper <em>&quot;Exiting Major IT Contracts: Guidance for Departments</em>”.</p><p>The programme to disaggregate and replace ICT services delivered through a PFI contract with CGI (formally Logica) since 2002 is well advanced and will complete in 2019. Throughout the programme the CPS has worked in partnership with the Government Digital Service and the Crown Commercial Service, securing spending control approval from Cabinet Office and HM Treasury where appropriate. The CPS’s strategy ensures that it is aligned with the government’s Technology Code of Practice including the principle of cloud-first services.</p><p>In 2015 the CPS carried out a major review of its internal capability across all aspects of ICT including technical, service management, commercial and programme management. As a result a new separate ICT Commercial Team was established and a number of new roles were established and filled in its Digital Technology Services Directorate.</p><p>The CPS operates detailed programme plans and associated risk logs to manage each phase of the disaggregation including pre-market engagement, procurement, service transition and service exit.</p><p>The CPS has used pan-government frameworks, let and managed by the Crown Commercial Service to replace network, telephony, print and applications hosting and management services. It is planning to use these frameworks to replace service desk and end user computing services in 2018. As part of each procurement process, it undertakes market engagement, the extent of which is dependent on the size and complexity of the contract to be awarded.</p><p>The CPS provides ICT services to the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) and HMCPSI.</p><p>The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) does not have any large outsourced single vendor IT contract in place.</p><p>It uses a multi-vendor approach, selecting suppliers based on their ability to support their specialised systems, and that is combined with in-house teams, which have grown in size in recent years as they reduce their reliance on external providers.</p><p>The SFO regularly reviews all its IT contracts taking into account the potential for disaggregation, benefits, costs, timing, risks, and overall value for money, in line with the guidance provided by the Government Commercial Function.</p><p>The largest contract currently in place is with Capita, and that contract is due to expire in July 2019. Ahead of that, a full review will take place, to determine whether it continues to outsource this service to Capita or another provider, or bring the service in house.</p><p>The Government Legal Department (GLD) does not hold any large single provider contracts worth over £20 million per year which fall within the guidance published in November 2017. GLD uses its own in-house IT services as well as using a multi provider approach when delivering any IT services. It is committed to following the principles contained within the guidance where applicable.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) is responsible for the IT systems of CPS, Attorney General’s Office (AGO) and Her Majesty’s CPS Inspectorate (HMCPSI).</p><p>Of their eight core corporate IT systems, six were launched more than eight years ago – however, the component parts thereof are replaced and upgraded regularly. Both the hardware and the software have been updated and refreshed throughout their lifetime to make them fit for continued use into the future. One of the other systems is approximately 5 years old, and the same applies; the remaining system is new.</p><p>Where these systems are supplied by external providers, a requirement for prompt updating is part of the supplier contract. Where they are managed in-house, this is part of the internal service agreement with the relevant team. Our internal Service Management team monitors adherence to these commitments in all cases.</p><p>The Government Legal Department (GLD) uses a number IT systems, most of which are regularly updated by applying the suppliers recommended patches and version updates, after appropriate testing.</p><p>Specifically:</p><p>(a) GLD has one system (Solcase) over three years old. It was last updated in 2014 and the next upgrade is due in May 2018.</p><p>(b) GLD has two systems (RKYV and Windows 7) that are over 8 years old. The RKYV document management system, used by only a few individuals, is currently being decommissioned. This system was last updated in 2008. The desktop operating system is Windows 7, which was released in 2009. Configuration of a new Windows 10 build is in progress, and GLD is aiming to roll this out in the next month.</p><p>The answers to the specific questions in relation to the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) are a) 8; b) 2 and c) 3. This information relates only to IT Business System Applications, which enable work to be processed, and not supporting infrastructure and operating systems.</p><p>The calculated age of the SFO’s IT systems is based on the last upgrade or install date. Projects are already underway to replace or decommission a number of the systems that currently fall into the 8, 5 and 3 year old categories.</p><p> </p>
