The ODPM website was procured as the result of a fair and open competition. In awarding the contract all tenders were evaluated and the successful tender was deemed to have achieved the best balance on price and satisfying the detailed requirements criteria.

I refer the hon. Member to the answer given on 17 October 2005, Hansard, column 806W. Unique visitors to the ODPM website have more than doubled since its launch. The website also helps ODPM to fulfil its commitment to Freedom of Information, with more than 300 publications and nearly 300 press releases and statements uploaded to the website in 2004–05. ODPM is therefore continuing to develop the corporate website as a value for money channel for government information.
