Good morning,


Further to your request under the Freedom of Information Act, please see
our response below.  


“Neath Port Talbot Council have not actually implemented a new Adult
Services system because NPT inherited the existing system from West
Glamorgan County Council on reorganisation in 1996 and develop/maintain
the system in-house.


The Adult Services system modules have been amended over the years by
in-house developers.  Dependant on the nature of the change some upgrades
/ rewrites have taken up to six months development time. The old and new
system modules usually run alongside each other until cases in the old
version have been closed down.”

Authority’s FOI Policy, you may appeal in writing setting out the reasons
why you think the decision is erroneous, to the Authority’s Monitoring
