Government Departments: ICT

Volume 488: debated on Tuesday 3 March 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what estimate the Cabinet Office has made of the number of Government IT projects initiated in the last five years which are (a) over budget and (b) behind schedule. (258595)

During the past five years, we have initiated eight major IT projects in the Department. Of these one is currently behind schedule and two were delivered one month late. No major IT project initiated in this period is currently over budget.

Each Government Department is responsible for the management of its own IT projects. The Cabinet Office does not keep information centrally about IT projects managed by other Departments.
