Departmental Internet

Volume 508: debated on Tuesday 6 April 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions pursuant to the answer of 2 March 2010, Official Report, column 1023W, on departmental internet, what the cost was of the website redesign. (321921)

The cost of the DWP Corporate website redesign was £216,000. The website was redesigned as part of our response to Sir David Varney’s transformational government recommendations that customer-facing content should move to Directgov and employer-facing content to Business Link. We therefore redesigned the corporate site for its refined corporate audience and removed all customer-facing content, while at the same time implementing new Cabinet Office guidelines for Government websites.
