Volume 471: debated on Wednesday 30 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many staff in his Department are working on the central management of change programme (a) in London and (b) in each region. (181935)

A small central team of 13 staff full-time equivalents work in the Department’s Centre of Excellence for Programme Management. Among their responsibilities is the management of the Department’s change portfolio of programmes and projects. All the Department’s agencies and business units are responsible for development and delivery of their own change programmes. Information on the number of people engaged in the management of change is not held centrally within the Department and could not be obtained without disproportionate cost. This is because the information is unlikely to be available locally, as it is not required for normal day-to- day operations and change activities are often dispersed nationally across the business units.
