§ Mr. Soames
asked the Minister for the Civil Service in which Departments MINIS (a) is and (b) is not now operating; and what are the reasons in the latter case.
§ Mr. Hayhoe
All the Departments taking part in the financial management initiative are either using or making good progress in establishing management systems that, like MINIS, provide the information needed to monitor in detail the matching of resources to objectives. The Departments are listed, and their plans described, in part 2 of the White Paper "Financial Management in Government Departments", Cmnd. 9058, which was published in September.
