answer
unstar this property answer text <p>The latest version of Outlook was included in Parliament’s rollout of Microsoft Office 365 during 2014 as part of the Improved Access to Services (IATS) project. IATS also delivered other new services but the costs of that project identifiable as directly related to Microsoft Outlook were £355,667 in 2013-14 and £158,802 in 2014-15 (including VAT).</p><p>In addition, Parliament provides each user with Microsoft Windows and its associated Office 365 software at a cost of £98.75 (not including VAT) per user per year.</p><p>The service has been deployed to over 7,000 users on the Parliamentary network and the overall system is working to specification. A number of users have reported some issues. In particular they have raised concerns about the design of the new Outlook interface and some have reported problems with passwords needing to be re-entered. Both of these issues have been raised with Microsoft.</p><p>If any Member is experiencing difficulties then Parliamentary ICT (PICT) is ready to offer assistance.</p><p> </p>

answer
unstar this property answer text <p>The recommendations from the Speaker of the House of Commons’ Commission on Digital Democracy are presently being actively considered by the relevant bodies in each House, including comparing existing plans and projects to the recommendations made. As most of the recommendations in the Report concern the House of Commons this answer only covers ongoing work which involves the House of Lords.</p><p> </p><p>The Digital Democracy Report recommended that all published information and broadcast footage produced by Parliament should be freely available online in formats suitable for re-use. In July 2014 the House of Lords Management Board, in parallel with its House of Commons equivalent, committed to making this happen. Significant work has already been completed to develop the data.parliament.uk platform which publishes parliamentary data in easily re-usable formats. The aim is that all parliamentary data that is in the public domain will be available on data.parliament.uk but for some types of information this will take significant work. Current House of Lords Hansard is already published on data.parliament.uk in XML format; Hansard archive data going back to the year 1803 is also available as XML files. The Register of Lords’ Interests is another dataset published on data.parliament.uk platform; this is available as an API which returns data in various formats including JSON and XML. A full list of datasets currently available can be found from the Parliamentary website: <a href="http://www.data.parliament.uk/dataset" target="_blank">www.data.parliament.uk/dataset</a>. Further sets of data will be added in the coming months</p><p> </p><p>Parliament encourages the reuse of material made available. Use of Parliamentary material is governed by the terms of the Open Parliament Licence (further details can be found on the Parliamentary website: <a href="http://www.parliament.uk/site-information/copyright/open-parliament-licence" target="_blank">www.parliament.uk/site-information/copyright/open-parliament-licence</a>). The Open Parliament Licence is designed to allow Parliamentary material to be used freely and flexibly, consistent with the way public sector information is made available for use under the Open Government Licence.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The new Director of the Parliamentary Digital Service will join Parliament in March 2015 and take responsibility the new Service from April 2015. He will be tasked with developing and implementing a digital strategy for Parliament that will put digital first, making the best use of digital technology to strengthen the United Kingdom’s key democratic institution while enabling citizens to access Parliament in new and meaningful ways. The new digital strategy will outline the resources and skills needed to deliver it, as well as policies about data and plans for future ICT projects.</p>
