Assurance Approach

In order to achieve assured status against a Supplementary Care Standard a Supplier must go through an assurance process which includes:

  • Capability Assessments

  • Standards Assurance

  • Some limited Non-Functional Solutions Assurance

  • First of Type (where necessary from a service perspective)

The assurance undertaken for a Supplementary Care Standard is confined to elements of the software which are concerned with the service in question. Therefore the presence of a Supplementary Care Standard does not necessarily mean that assurance of a whole Supplier Solution has occurred under the DSIC, unless that is stated elsewhere.
