Departmental ICT

Volume 507: debated on Tuesday 9 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what information technology projects initiated by (a) his Department and (b) its agencies were cancelled prior to completion in the last 12 months; and what the cost of each such project was to the public purse. (320426)

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has not cancelled any significant information technology projects during the past five years. To provide more detailed information on small individual projects, including from across our network of posts, would incur disproportionate cost.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office does not maintain centrally details of information technology projects for its agencies. This information could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
