SDA Solutions for the Cabinet Office

Resilience Capabilities Survey 2017

The "Resilience Capability Survey" contract provides a single solution to enable the Civil Contingencies Secretariat, a department of the Cabinet Office, to collect, process and analyse resilience and readiness data from many national and local responder organisations in the United Kingdom.

An added dimension is that the data is considered to be at least "official sensitive" and that therefore the solution has to be very secure.

Software for Data Analysis Limited (SDA) were chosen to provide "SCROLL", their professional data collection, processing and analysis tool, as a managed service, following their G-Cloud tender.

SCROLL service features, as determined in close collaboration with the customer, include

SDA's fully managed service enabled all of these service requirements to be seamlessly integrated into Cabinet Office's delivery plan including discovery, alpha, beta and live phases, each delivered to time and cost. SDA provided the necessary expertise, from agile management and technical design through to product support and fulfilment as the phases progressed.

At all points the customer had a dedicated point of contact empowered to introduce other members of the development team as appropriate.

To support this mission-critical and highly secure operation, SDA also provide comprehensive ISO27001:2013 certification of "The design, development, provision and maintenance of data analytic services. This includes all SDA staff, processes and locations where information assets, hosting and backup are accommodated."

Reducing Administrative Burdens

The Administrative Burdens Measurement Exercise (ABME) was launched by the Government in response to the Better Regulation Task Force’s report, ‘Regulation: Less is More’ as part of the Chancellor of the Exchequer’s Better Regulation Action Plan (BRAP).

The aim of the ABME was to estimate the administrative costs incurred by the private sector as a result of all regulations imposed by central government.

SDA created an online Admin Burdens Calculator for the Cabinet Office that was used by all central government departments and their agencies to model their administrative burdens. In addition to a secure environment for departments, SDA also provided a public facing website that enabled users to view and model, but not store, calculations.
