An inquiry into the delayed modernisation of the Disclosure and Barring Service was launched on 8 March, with only 5 days to respond.  A National Audit Office (NAO) report found that the aims of this modernisation have not been met and the project has faced significant delays and additional costs.

One factor was that demand for the new update service has been much lower than expected and has not delivered the savings intended.  

The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) would now like to hear more from you changes to the update service.
