Onboarding and offboarding

Onboarding and offboarding
Getting started CRC Delius is supported by architectural and functional documentation. This is provided during the implementation phase. There are training manuals, the facility to train on-site or remotely, and a range of potential options for guided, independent learning.
Service documentation Yes

Other documentation formats Word Document
End-of-contract data extraction The data held locally can be archived, however, much of it will already be copied in National Delius by virtue of the exchange over the SPG.
End-of-contract process CRC Delius supports a mission critical facility. As such, we would expect that the end of contract activity requires careful planning and is dependent on the customer decision on the successor system. This would be a costed, additional, transition activity.
Should the business be transferred back to the NPS, then the data will already be present in National Delius.

Accessibility standards WCAG 2.0 AA or EN 301 549
Accessibility testing Our UI components are currently in use, deployed in production and utilised by users of a range of AT software tools. We have tested each component ourselves with Dragon, Jaws and a range of screen magnifiers. Our UI is built from this tested range of standard components.
Customisation available Yes
Description of customisation Individual user preferences for colours and contrast levels can be changed. There is a wealth of local configuration options for reference data, which governs the behaviour of the application through linked lists. The customer is able to set up their own local tasks and warnings to customise workflow management.


Independence of resources The deployment is to an AWS hosted environment with elastic scaling of resource. Individual customers may opt to keep their own, separate instance rather than a single, multi-use deployment.


Service usage metrics Yes
Metrics types This would depend on the nature of the customer's bespoke service and on whether or not the hosting was provided as an integral part of the service. All transactions are logged and hardware monitored. Service usage is used to drive proactive management of the system.

Data importing and exporting
Data export approach Reports generated through the application can be printed, or exported in a range of formats.
An overnight extract of the daily delta is facilitated by an integrated Change Data Capture utility. This will also support a full extract of data. Although BCL can support the ETL process, this is additional activity and dependent on the customer choice of third party products.
Data is automatically maintained in sync with National Delius via the SPG.

Availability and resilience

Availability and resilience
Guaranteed availability There will be a bespoke, customer led service architecture with availability PIs, associated with a service credit for failures to meet these. Availability will be dependent also on the infrastructure provider should this not be managed via BCL. Deployment will be at the discretion of the purchaser, so physical components and network availability may not be our responsibility.
Approach to resilience Available on request.
Outage reporting Email alerts on any notification. Configuration of outage reporting will be dependent on customer decisions taken during implementation and be encapsulated in our joint service architecture and agreement.
We already provide for various customers, outage reporting via a public dashboard, and via email.

Vulnerability management type Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Vulnerability management approach Assessing potential threats:
As part of ISO27001, we use document ISMS06002: Risk Assessment and Treatment Process as an implementation guide to dealing with potential threats to our services. Specifically, the section on Process details our approach to protective monitoring. This document has been tuned to work well for BCL.

Patch deployment:
A measure of discretion is used, however, urgent patches and updates are applied at the first opportunity. We aim to use versions of support libraries and utilities, or deployable items at version n-1 or n where possible.

Potential Threats:
Vendors and community contacts/groups
Protective monitoring type Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Protective monitoring approach Identify potential compromises:
As part of ISO27001, we use document ISMS06002: Risk Assessment and Treatment Process as an implementation guide to dealing with potential compromises to our services. Specifically, the section on Risk Treatment details our approach to protective monitoring. This document has been tuned to work well for BCL.

Respond to potential compromises, and incident response time:
Response is based on the section "Risk Treatment Options" in the above mentions ISMS document.

Pre-defined processes:
BCL documents processes for incidents that may likely happen more than once, or may have a certain regularity. These documents are referenced and updated as systems evolve.

User incident reporting:
This is process is detailed in the above document, in the section titled "Process Narrative".

(Cumulative) Reports on incidents:
Incidents are logged in JIRA, and reports can therefore be produced from the database of these logged incidents.
