The DotP application is a content management software product. Since the original development of DotP the software market has matured and there may now be commercial-off-the-shelf products to which DotP could transition, so that it continues to deliver the strategic benefit and best value for money always envisaged by the DotP Programme. This is being considered and Government are still retaining all of their options.
