unstar this property answer text <p>The annunciator system was replaced with a new system on 14 December 2018. The replacement provides an improved platform from which to implement further service enhancements. In parallel in 2018 we prototyped some tools to explore how we might provide the annunciator plus additional extended information in a mobile app. A key learning was that to provide Members with a smartphone app with the timeliness and accuracy of the annunciator service required further feasibility work. Funding for this feasibility work is available in the new financial year and also for some user research with Members to confirm what other new features related to the Annunciator would be of most benefit. No explicit timing for this work has yet been defined but it is hoped to have completed the feasibility review by the autumn.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>In January of this year the Director of the Digital Service commissioned Deloitte to conduct an independent efficiency review of the Digital Service 10 months after its formation. The top level finding of the review was that: “Parliamentary Digital Service (PDS) is not failing in terms of efficiency for the budget it is allocated and systems it operates, however, it is failing to meet its potential.”</p><p>The review identified eight key themes to improve efficiency and effectiveness: benefits &amp; outcomes, culture, governance, asset management, talent, infrastructure, contracts and strategy. The Digital Service has fully accepted that these are areas for improvement and senior Digital Service staff are taking ownership of these areas.</p> more like this

The detailed design for the permanent replacement will be developed once an outline business case has been approved in early February 2017. It is envisaged that a solution sympathetic to the existing local architecture will be adopted. This will be subject to obtaining the necessary consents and permissions from Westminster City Council. We plan to start these works by the end of 2017.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Digital Service is delivering a major investment programme for Parliament’s network. The programme will make improvements to Parliament’s ICT network, including internet access and email system. The delivery will address issues around speed, resilience and most importantly security when accessing internet based services. A tranche of improvements will be completed in September 2017, in particular:</p><p /><ul><li>Speed of access – Network design simplification, increase in throughput of security devices and increase of internet circuit bandwidth;</li><li>Resilience – dynamic routing with fast failover times with multiple routes out to the internet.</li></ul><p><br>The programme will provide further resilience and security enhancements for the network (Campus LAN) operating within the Parliamentary estate by the end of December 2017. The final tranche in the first half of 2018 will see performance and security enhancements for the WiFi network infrastructure within the estate. The Digital Service will continue to work to improve the security and protections in place around email, which in turn supports the reliability of email by reducing the impact that malicious email can have.</p><p>The improvements are primarily focused on the reliability and security of Parliament's network. However, the changes will provide Members with a more consistent user experience and speed of access when using the network, including access to the Internet. Responsiveness of Internet sites is also dependent upon factors outside of Parliament's network.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>In April 2018, the average weekly number of visitors entering the Parliamentary estate from the three main visitor entrances (Cromwell Green Entrance, Portcullis House and Black Rod’s Garden Entrance) was approximately 17,000. This period comprised both sitting and recess dates. These figures are taken from readings on the security archways that visitors pass through as part of the search and screening process.</p><p>Visitors to Parliament access the estate for many reasons. It is not possible to provide an accurate estimate of the number of non-passholders who are admitted without being accompanied or sponsored by a Member.</p><p>Visitors access the estate to meet with a Member or a member of staff; to attend a Member-sponsored meeting (including APPGs) or meetings at official level; to give evidence to a Committee; to lobby; to attend debates in both Houses (in the Chambers and Committees); to attend functions and banqueting events; to take a tour (both paid-for and democratic free tours); or as part of an Education Service visit.</p><p>Some of the activities listed require sponsorship by a Member. Other visits will not be directly linked to a Member of either House; such as those attending House or committee proceedings, or attendees at organised functions.</p><p>All non-passholders are subject to search and screening measures before entering the estate and must visibly display their visitor pass throughout their time on the estate.</p><p>Controls are in place to allow visitors to access certain areas of the building without being escorted by a passholder, including Westminster Hall, St Stephen’s Hall, Central Lobby and certain refreshment facilities.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The House authorities, in conjunction with the police, assess all Parliamentary activity each week. This assessment is based on risk and considers all events, including banqueting, committees, meetings and other Parliamentary business. Security provision is based on risk and threat and comprises many different actions which we cannot disclose in full.</p><p>Unaccompanied non-passholders accessing the Parliamentary estate in order to use refreshment facilities are restricted to a limited number of areas. These areas, and routes to and from the entrances and exits to the estate, are carefully controlled by security and other House staff to minimise the risk of non-passholders accessing other parts of the estate. We encourage all Members and staff to challenge any unaccompanied non-passholders who are found in a restricted area and to alert security staff to their presence.</p><p>All non-passholders are subject to search and screening measures before entering the estate and may not bring onto the estate prohibited items. Further information about these measures can be found on the Parliamentary website: <a href="https://www.parliament.uk/visiting/access/security/" target="_blank">https://www.parliament.uk/visiting/access/security/</a>.</p>
