Departmental IT

Volume 451: debated on Tuesday 7 November 2006

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer which IT contracts awarded by his Department in 2001-02 were subsequently abandoned; and what the value was of each such contract. (99386)

I refer the hon. Member to the answerI gave to the hon. Member for Angus (Mr. Weir) on9 October 2006, Official Report, column 285W.

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much his Department spent on IT consultants in each year since 2001; and how many of those consultants worked on web-facing projects. (97555)

The information requested is not readily available as the Department’s financial systems do not separately record all amounts spent on consultancy for IT projects, or the element of consultancy that is given to web-facing projects.
