To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office pursuant to the answer of 25 February 2010, Official Report, column 698W, on departmental internet, what the cost was of the website redesign. (321935)

The design referred to in the answer of 25 February 2010, Official Report, column 698W, was provided by in-house resource at no cost.

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office how many designs for its (a) internal website and (b) intranet her Department has commissioned since 2005; and what the cost was of each such design. (321992)

The Prime Minister's Office is an integral part of Cabinet Office.

The (a) internal website and (b) intranet are classed as the same website for the purpose of this response.

The Department has commissioned one redesign of its intranet home page since 2005. In March 2009 the Cabinet Office replaced its PDF staff newsletter, ‘Inside’, with an online news service. This work was carried out by an external agency at a cost of £10,245 plus VAT. This spend only relates to the Department's intranet.

No designs have been commissioned for the intranet for No. 10 Downing street since 2005.
