Public Sector: IT Projects

Volume 692: debated on Monday 4 June 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether, as recently stated by the chief information officer at the Department for Work and Pensions, 30 per cent of public sector technology-based projects and programmes are a success. [HL3916]

The figure quoted does not measure the success of public sector IT projects. The 30 per cent figure was quoted from an independent British Computer Society report entitled Case Study of Successful Complex IT Projects, published in August 2005.
