Examination of Witnesses (Questions 140-141)|
CB, MR ANDREW
MONDAY 13 MAY 2002
140. Ms McDonald, would you prefer to go back
to Departments and share this information with us?
(Mavis McDonald) We may not have made it clear to
the Committee that neither the OGC, nor the Cabinet Office anywhere
else, nor the Office of the e-Envoy, see every individual major
project that is going on. The detailed negotiations of the business
case are with the Treasury. We do get involved in specifics, either
if Andrew's team are helping Departments develop an idea and are
working in tandem with them, or if the OGC have done a gateway
review and been asked by the Treasury to comment on some specific
proposals. At the moment we are not collecting that detail; the
Treasury are collecting that detailed information across the board.
We work with the Treasury very closely on this. Certainly it is
something that we can look at again in terms of what information
we are gathering between us.
141. Can the Treasury give us an interim assessment
then? If this work has been carried out can you share some of
your work with us in a note?
(Mr Molan) We can certainly consider what we can provide.
Chairman: Thank you Ms McDonald, Mr Pinder and
Mr Barrett for coming before us. Clearly, if your ambitions are
realised, we are going to see a revolution in the way that services
are delivered. This is a very important subject and this hearing
could be the start of something very important. Thank you very
much. Order, order.
