So much for the new NOMS system:

Spiralling costs have prompted an urgent review of the government’s new end-to-end National Offender Management Service database, it has been revealed.

The original estimate for the EDS-built system was £234m, but unions reckon that with £155m already spent the project will come in at £950m. The National Association of Probation Officers (NAPO) yesterday described the project as “close to collapse”.

The estimate for Contactpoint is £224m and for the new national eCAF database a mere £44.5m over 6 years. No, we don’t believe it either.
