CSA reform still in limbo

The news that Sir David Henshaw is to make proposals to reform or replace the CSA has resulted in less news about it. There is no longer the same degree of lobbying to convince the government that reform is needed - they appear to have got the message!

A problem remains - the constraints on his review caused by the current CSA computer contract. Since the CSA's computer is based on the workflow of the current CSA organisation, and assumes the reformed formula of the 2000 Act, retaining this computer would prevent a system radically different from the current one being deployed.

The government must be prepared to rethink how the UK's future child support scheme is supported by computing, otherwise they will simply repeat the current mess.
