Jersey's Comptroller and Auditor General has today issued a report on the Government of Jersey's Integrated Technology Solution, a multi-year programme aimed at delivering effective public services for Islanders by transforming core Government functions.
Deputy Scott Wickenden, who has Ministerial responsibility for the Programme, said: "The Government welcomes the report and thanks the Comptroller and Auditor General for a thorough review. Overall, the review is a positive endorsement of how the Programme was set-up and the procurement process that was undertaken."
"The review includes a number of recommendations, the majority of which are underway or have already been implemented. It acknowledges that the procurement for the ITS Programme was well conducted and that a good governance structure is in place. It also highlights a number of challenges to its implementation, including the capacity of Government colleagues to engage fully with the Programme in order for timely decisions to be made. Constant improvements to the ITS Programme are being made to ensure a successful delivery for Government colleagues, suppliers and Islanders."
The Government will now consider the report and its recommendations and will respond fully in due course.
