Government issues post-Brexit right to rent guidance

Residential Landlords Association | May 14, 2019

The government has finally issued guidance for landlords on right to rent checks for EU citizens in post-Brexit Britain. Under right to rent landlords are responsible for checking the immigration status of their tenants with the prospect of prosecution if they know or have “reasonable cause to believe” that the property they are letting is occupied by someone who does not have the right to rent in the UK. Landlords and letting agents have been told they should continue to conduct right to rent checks on EU, EEA and Swiss citizens in the same way as now, usually by checking and making a copy of an EEA national’s passport or identity card, until 1 January 2021. If the prospective tenant does not have a passport or identity card there is a list of approved documents which are also valid. This can be found here. The arrangement remains the same if the UK leaves the EU with or without a deal, with the government also confirming landlords will notneed to check if new EEA and Swiss tenants arrived before or after the UK left the EU, or if they have status under the EU Settlement Scheme or European temporary leave to remain.

Oracle | October 14, 2020

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Government Cloud Services has obtained a Provisional Authority to Operate (P-ATO) from the FedRAMP Joint Authorization Board (JAB). The accreditation continues to demonstrate that OCI is a compliant, cost-effective, and highly-secure platform for our public sector customers' most critical workloads. The JAB is the primary governance and decision-making body for the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP), the government program that sets the standard for assessing, authorizing, and monitoring cloud systems' security. FedRAMP offers two types of authorizations: Agency ATO and JAB P-ATO. Having already achieved a FedRAMP High Agency ATO, Oracle's achievement of the FedRAMP High JAB P-ATO further assures agencies that the risk posture of the system has been reviewed and approved by leading technology officials. The accreditation can also reduce both time and cost for government customers to secure their own agency ATO.

Oracle Cloud Assists the UK Government in Driving Efficiencies, Cost Savings, and Productivity Throughout the Public Sector

Oracle | June 09, 2021

Today Oracle has further expanded its commitment to the UK Government with the update of an existing Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Crown Commercial Service (CCS) and Oracle, as well as a new commitment to enhance Oracle's Government Centre of Excellence. The updated arrangement is expected to foster an even stronger working relationship between Oracle and the UK public sector, enabling better use of secure cloud technologies. The Oracle Centre of Excellence will provide additional support and technical capabilities to help the UK Government better use Oracle Cloud. CCS – the UK's largest public procurement organization – supports the UK public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. Last year, CCS helped the UK public sector achieve commercial benefits worth more than £1 billion – supporting world-class public services that offer the best value for taxpayers. Oracle and the UK Government first signed an MOU in 2012, paving the way for a long-term partnership. The updated MOU will ensure that central, local, and devolved governments and all public service departments and agencies, such as NHS Trusts, can make continued use of Oracle Cloud. Critical public services will have access to the full suite of Oracle Cloud applications, secure infrastructure services, and autonomous technology. The Oracle Cloud can help customers like the UK Government drive greater efficiencies, automation, and productivity, all of which could support the UK economic recovery. The enhanced Oracle Centre of Excellence will provide the UK Government with even more support for its use of Oracle Cloud, enabling better use of secure cloud technologies to support long-term innovation and transformation of public services. It will provide public sector organizations with additional support in moving workloads to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure or expanding their Oracle Cloud Applications Suite. Oracle provides the only dual-region sovereign cloud for UK public sector customers and works with hundreds of public sector customers, such as the Home Office, Office for National Statistics, the NHS NEP, Birmingham City Council, the Ministry of Defence, and West Midlands Police. The updated MOU expands on these relationships and will allow more public sector organizations to use cloud technologies for their efforts to deliver the best possible public services and greater value for the taxpayer. About Oracle Oracle offers integrated suites of applications plus secure, autonomous infrastructure in the Oracle Cloud.
