Ministry of Justice ICT landscape report

Published: December 2013
No. of Pages: 45


This report looks at the ICT market landscape in the UK criminal justice market. It is intended both for those currently working with public sector criminal justice clients, and those considering this market for the first time.

Introduction and Landscape

  • Cuts to the departmental expenditure limit of the Ministry of Justice come at a time when pressure on the Ministry's services continue to rise. While the challenges of transitioning from a legacy ICT estate are considerable, so too are the opportunities. The scale of necessary savings cannot be achieved purely by cutting back budgets. There is a need to change business processes, which requires additional ICT investment.
  • While the department continues to centralise procurement, suppliers will increasingly need to understand how the different parts of the Ministry operate together in order to fully exploit the transformational opportunities.

Key Features and Benefits

Kable covers the use of ICT in the public sector across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

  • Highlighting key technological trends within the sector.
