Government favourite EDS has reportedly won a £39m contract with the National Offender Management Service to develop technology that will be able to track offenders as they pass through the criminal justice system.

The so-called National Offender Management Information System (NOMIS), is the underlying technology that will join the HM Prison Service and the National Probation Service (NPS) information, in real time, and is supposed to reduce reoffending rates.

It will contain profiles of offenders, including details of education, training, as well as case history, and is designed to help staff make better decisions about the future of individuals - for example, over whether or not someone should be released.

The contract will initially be worth £39m, but could be extended by £40m for extra services. It will be delivered under the existing Quantum contract, EDS said, and will run until 2012.

A pilot programme will begin in 2006, and the system is expected to roll out to all users in the year-and-a-half that follows. ®
