Departmental ICT

Volume 487: debated on Wednesday 4 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families (1) which ICT projects his Department and its predecessors initiated and abandoned before completion in each year since 1997; what costs were incurred in each project; who the contractors for each were; on what date each was (a) commenced and (b) abandoned; and if he will make a statement; (251386)

(2) what the initial estimated (a) cost and (b) delivery date was of each ICT project initiated by his Department and its predecessors in each year since 1997; what the (i) outturn cost and (ii) completion date was of each such project subsequently completed; which contractors were hired for each project; and how much has been paid to each contractor in respect of each project to date.

The Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) does not hold a current comprehensive list of ICT projects at the level of detail requested. This could be calculated only at disproportionate cost.
