Answered by: Joe FitzPatrick 14 December 2018
A full review of the IT development and security requirements of the Drug and Alcohol Information System, to ensure compliance with the IT specification, will be completed by National Services Scotland (NSS) in December 2018. Following this, the Information Services Division (ISD) in NSS will set out a timetable for implementation in January 2019. It is anticipated that the system will be fully operational in 2019.
