Dear Ministry of Justice,
Since the early part of the last decade an IT system variously known as NOMIS or C-NOMIS has been under development. It deals with offender management and has been the subject of considerable criticism. I would be grateful for a copy of the requirements specification given to the developers who I believe were EDS. Such a requirements specification will contain a description of all the functional requirements of the system together with constraints and non-functional requirements.

Yours faithfully,

Darrel Ince

16-APR-10 Our Ref:FOI/64674/10

Dear Mr Ince,

SUBJECT: Freedom of Information Request

Thank you for your correspondence of April 14, 2010, in which you asked
for a copy of the requirements of NOMIS or C-NOMIS under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (FOIA) from the Ministry of Justice (MoJ).

You will receive a response from us by May 14, 2010. Your request has
been passed to the appropriate business unit within the MoJ, and they
will write to you with their decision by this date.

The FOIA does provide a number of exemptions. A qualified exemption
requires that before relying on it we must consider the public interest
test. If the information you have requested is covered by a qualified
exemption(s) under FOIA, the Department is allowed to take longer than
20 working days to respond. This is because in such circumstances we are
required to consider the public interest issues when deciding whether or
not to disclose the information requested.

If more time is needed to consider the public interest issues under a
qualified exemption(s), we will write to you and inform you of the
revised date you can expect to receive a response to your request.

If you have any queries regarding this request please do not hesitate to
contact us. Please quote ref: FOI/64674/10 in all future correspondence.

Yours sincerely,

James Noble

Dear Napenas, Kim,

Thank you for the prompt reply. Unfortunately what you have sent me is the PRIME requirements specification which is a system for offendor management in prisons. This morphed into C-NOMIS after it was decided to include probation office functionality and rename the project C-NOMIS. The document that you sent me does not contain anything to do with the probation office, the one which you should have sent should contain the PRIME functiolity plus probation functionality and should have been renamed C-NOMIS. I would be grateful for an internal review.

Yours sincerely,

Darrel Ince
