Technology forms an intrinsic enabler of Parliament’s operation and is used mainly to support and enhance its strategic objectives. The website for Parliament is one such initiative that serves to provide the public, members of Parliament and national and international stakeholders with valuable information on Parliament. In 2006 ThoughtCorp (through a partnership with Arivia.kom) was appointed to redevelop Parliament’s website strategy. The new website went live in February 2008. The new website successfully projects Parliament’s new vibrant corporate identity. It also creates a platform for public participation in the business of Parliament, including access to Parliamentary papers, news, members and committees.
