BRITAIN’s SERIOUS FRAUD OFFICE LOOKS TO UNIX FOR ITS FIRST SYSTEM

By CBR Staff Writer

The UK Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency has issued an operational requirement for a Unix-based computer system for use in the Serious Fraud Office in Central London. The office, set up by the Government in April to deal with major fraud cases such as the bending of the rules in the Guinness takeover of Distillers, and the Barlow Clowes gilts collapse, says it needs the system to assist with case investigation, case tracking activities and management information relating to case progress and key performance indicators. Initially supporting 30 users, the system must be upgradable, and should have a Unix-like operating system that supports the Oracle database and local area network facilities. The office has a budget of some UKP60m and a staff of 80 to 100 people.
