Schools: Transport

Volume 486: debated on Thursday 15 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families whether the specification for the Home to School Transport ICT solution has been developed alongside the process to appoint a solution supplier. (247205)

An ICT functional specification, aimed at assisting schools in identifying travel needs, carrying out risk assessments and the approval and procurement of a transport solution, has been developed by contractors engaged by the Department. No decision has yet been taken to develop and implement a solution based on that specification or not, and no supplier has been commissioned to do so.
