The Register: Hundreds of millions ‘wasted’ on UK court digitisation scheme

The Register: Hundreds of millions ‘wasted’ on UK court digitisation scheme. “Hundreds of millions of pounds have been wasted on plans to digitise the criminal justice system due to the mismanagement of a key programme that has so far delivered little value to the taxpayer, according to multiple insiders. The Common Platform Programme (CPP) was supposed to be complete by March 2019. However, a spokeswoman from HM Courts & Tribunals Service (HMCTS) said the programme will not be complete until 2020 at a revised cost of £270m.”
