H M Courts & Tribunals Service has put the completion date for its court modernisation programme back by a year.
The government announced today the revised proposed finish date of the £1bn project will now be 2023.
Ministers said they had learnt from the services already reformed and feedback received from the Public Accounts Committee and National Audit Office. The plan is now to ‘reorder aspects of the programme’ to allow more time to develop some of the shared systems that will form the basis of the next set of online services. It is not clear from the announcement which services are being held back and delayed by the extra year.
