Latest news

School/Service research took place in late 2008. The Research Report was approved by the Project Board meeting on 2nd February 2009. Project teams were formed and the process mapping of the current process was carried out. In March 2009 the news that the implementation of the VBS was to be delayed led to the project being put on hold.  The Board reconvened on 26 January 2010 and noted that the sector guidance was still awaited. It was agreed to monitor the situation and reconvene when significant information was available, likely to be Spring 2010.  In March 2010 it was agreed that the Board members were now in a position to coordinate the work that was required to complete the project as the Projects Team resource was required elsewhere.
