Two-year project intended lensure quality of Criminal Justice System Common Platform digital service

HM Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) and the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) are looking for a team of  up to 10 testers to work on agile projects  that will help ensure the quality of Criminal Justice System Common Platform’s digital service

The testers will help deliver specific products/transformations via multi-disciplinary, skilled digital teams. The selected team will need to ensure the quality of the digital service by testing it manually and writing automated tests covering a range of conditions.

The Criminal Justice System Common Platform Programme (CJSCPP) is a change programme to enable the CJS and agencies be more efficient and deliver a better service. For the first time, criminal case information will be kept together in one place, and parties will be able to access and update the same data set based on their security profile and associated access rights.

The CJSCPP is designed to develop efficient, proportionate and accessible digital services delivering access to justice via appropriate modern channels. It is part of a wider portfolio of change being delivered by HMCTS under the HMCTS Reform Programme, affecting services in all jurisdictions.

The CJSCP Programme has already produced the technical foundations for a domain driven micro-service based back end architecture with service model architecture on the front end. These include frameworks and design patterns that new team members will be expected to work with.

The CJSCP Programme users' needs are:

1) As a citizen, view and track my case online, be alerted to changes and for the case to proceed efficiently.

2) As a prosecutor, understand case evidence to ascertain likelihood of a successful prosecution.

3) As a defence practitioner, understand the evidence of a case to best advise my client.

4) As a HMCTS admin, manage the delivery of justice services so the process is delivered efficiently.

5) As a member of the judiciary, access all relevant information so that I can make a judgement

6) As a prosecuting agency, submit evidence to provide HMCTS with relevant information.

The supplier’s team will be required to work onsite at the base location in Croydon and London for five days per week.

The length of the contract is 24 months with a budget range rate of circa £700 per day.

The deadline for asking questions is September 6 and the closing date for applications is September 13. The latest start date for the project is October 15.
