MEPs are now offered a chance to give feedback on the review.
The UK Parliamentary ICT (PICT) will soon be replaced by a Digital Office, merging the management of all Web and Intranet Service (WIS) and ICT services into a single administration to upgrade its IT offering while renewing its legacy strategy.
In addition, the House of Commons and House of Lords Management Boards have also decided to appoint a Head of Digital, who will run the organisation as well, be responsible for delivering increasing satisfaction levels with Parliament’s digital services from Members, staff and the public.
A report by UK’s My Society noted that the separation of the web and ICT is outdated in principle and has broken down in practice.
"The breakdown is most clearly apparent in the failure of parliamentary authorities to agree on a future strategy for Parliament’s website," the report added.
"Separating ‘the internet’ from ‘ICT’ is now a division that serves only to increase friction and decrease the ability of Parliament to serve internal and external user needs."
"Like many organisations, Parliament started working on online, internetbased services as an addendum to its core business of producing and publishing documents: an experiment started in the 1990s to keep up with the times.
"The current structure of Parliament, with the Web and Intranet Services team separated from the ICT team, reflects this legacy."
Last week, Parliament was hit with several IT breakdown and computer crashes in the wake of a supplier error, which saw MPs and staff in Westminster inconvenienced by crashing web browsers and video as well as slower email delivery.
