    Planned Support for Impact Level labelling within your MIS? (DP Guidelines)

    Just wondering whether anyone had asked their MIS provider when they could expect support for on-screen impact level labelling within their MIS system and if you got a "by $date" response?

    The print-based labelling is just a template modification and easy enough for us to implement ourselves, but a narrow reading of the Labelling/Impact level doc* would require schools to abandon providers who didn't include the on-screen labels.

    Here is my reply from Serco regarding CMIS, i got today


    At the minute we don't have any time scales on when we will be implementing these guidelines from BECTA. The main reason for this is that there are no clear guidelines about which fields are which impact level and also which combinations of fields raise the impact level, until such things are finalised we will not be able to implement the guidelines in a consistent and accurate manner. Updated guidelines are going to be released in the next few weeks and we will be reviewing them, however any work we do will not be included in the April release of Facility.

    Thanks for that info k-strider, saves me a contact to Serco for that. They need to be starting to look at it as before we know it, it will be shoved through as law.

    We will also be reviewing the situation after the revised guidelines are released. Some areas are really impossible to implement in a simple manner. Take medical details - everyone would need to know about a nut allergy. The same field could contain info that is highly confidential.

    What do you mean by 'after the revised guidelines are released'? The full government report was released in 2008, and Becta released their guidelines too...
