SECMP0058 Changes to the governance of the Self-Service Interface
27/06/2019 (June 2019 SEC Release)
On 24 April 2019 the Change Board voted to approve SECMP0058 under Self-Governance. SECMP0058 will now be implemented on 27 June 2019 (June 2019 SEC Release).
What is the issue?
SEC Appendix AH currently sets out the detailed specifications and functionality for the SSI. This information is specified at a level of detail which is very prescriptive and, as a result, any change that a SEC Party wishes to make to the SSI but that impacts one of its Functional Components, requires a Modification Proposal to be raised and progressed. This governance mechanism isn’t the most appropriate form of governance for the SSI as it doesn’t allow for the level of flexibility required to make timely and cost-effective improvements to the SSI in order to improve User ability to access DCC services, which is undermining the usefulness of the SSI over time as the needs of Users change.
What is the solution?
This modification amends SEC Appendix AH ‘Self Service Interface Design Specification’ by removing the low-level detail and functional requirements and moving these to a new technical specification document titled the SSI Baseline Requirements Document, which will be maintained by the Data Communications Company (DCC). The new DCC managed technical specification document will not be subject to SEC Section D ‘Modification Process’. Instead, it will be a document owned and maintained by the DCC with approval of changes being made by the Panel or a delegated Sub-Committee. A new governance process will also be put in place outlining the step-by-step governance rules for managing improvements to the SSI, allowing for a more efficient SSI change process.
