Media statement: NCIS core capability

NCIS core capability was released on schedule in December 2020 and is currently in testing with our law enforcement partners.The system is live, and will be tested in a limited operational capacity from March with state and territory law enforcement partners ahead of progressive integration of NCIS consumption interfaces into local state and territory systems through a staged rollout.

In December NCIS was live on an accredited Public PROTECTED Cloud, with live data, a modernised user interface, a production level user authorisation model, audit and
monitoring capabilities, and enhanced data correlation and search capabilities. Feature upgrades will continue throughout 2021.

The budget for Tranche 1 of the NCIS program has not changed. Planning for future development of the NCIS program is not yet finalised and no changes in technical strategic direction have occurred since August 2020.
