MPs launch inquiry into government IT policy

Kathleen Hall

The way the government implements IT policy is to be scrutinised under a public administration select committee inquiry.

The inquiry will examine the government's overall IT strategy, including how it identifies business needs, the effectiveness of governance arrangements, and procurement policy and practice, said the committee of MPs.

"Central government is notorious for large IT projects running over time, over budget and ultimately failing. An examination of the effective use of IT in government is therefore timely," it added.

The select committee is inviting written evidence on issues relating to this inquiry. It expects to start evidence sessions on the inquiry in the new year.
