8. Digital Impact Test
8.1 To support the delivery of the expanded entitlement, and the implementation of new models of delivery, a new digital management information system for funded ELC provision is being developed. This system will accommodate the increased flexibility of provision being introduced, and ease the monitoring and management of the use of blended models and cross boundary provision. The system can be made available to all funded providers including childminders, and aims to allow all funded provision for a child to be recorded in one place.
8.2 Local authorities and providers are involved in the design of the system to ensure it meets the needs of users.
8.3 The Scottish Government recognises that ELC settings face a number of digital impacts, including those arising from reserved policies such as Tax Free Childcare.
