1. Purpose Of This Document
To describe how the Directorate for Agriculture and the Rural Economy ( ARE) is working in partnership with its contractors to address the key findings and recommendations from the Fujitsu Technical Review.
The body of the Technical Review Report is not presented in full as it contains sensitive commercial information, as well as technical detail (for example about our infrastructure and its maintenance status) which has implications for cyber-security. Publishing such detail could compromise the security of the Rural Payments and Services ( RP&S) IT platform and negatively impact the discussions that we have still to conduct with our current contractors and for future procurements.
