Technology services for members

Technology serves many goals. It can make business operations more efficient and it can help to inform and engage the public. But its first priority must be to support the work of members as they carry out their responsibilities for representing citizens, overseeing the government, and scrutinizing legislation. In smaller parliaments, where members do not have assigned staff or assistants, technology is vital for enabling them to communicate, receive and review documents, draft speeches and statements, and interact with citizens. In larger parliaments that have more staff and more resources technology is still essential for ensuring the efficiency of parliamentary work so that members can deal with the broad array of issues more effectively.
