To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how much was spent on the most recent redesign and implementation of her Departmental website. (200163)

The Government have embarked on a major exercise to review, rationalise and converge their websites. In this context, the new departmental website was launched in August 2007. Costs of £1,199,209 were incurred for research into the needs of website users, set up and site development, design, information architecture and data migration, editorial work and training.

The website is supported by the Department’s enterprise software licence and was implemented as part of the Department’s wider web rationalisation project.
