Comparisons are offered in the 2008 and 2010 editions. The report provides readers with concrete examples of the adoption of ICT in the most significant areas of parliamentary business. The report is intended to be read in conjunction with the 2008 and 2010 reports.



From paper documents to digital information: Managing parliamentary documentation

Systems for managing documentation in digital formats make parliamentary operations more efficient and help support transparency. These systems need to encompass the entire lifecycle of documents, from the time they are sent to the parliament, for example as draft bills from the government, or created by the parliament itself, such as committee reports and verbatim records of plenary sessions, until the time they are permanently archived. In between these actions, an effective document management system (DMS) must be able to support a range of important functions relating to document processing, including: editing by various “authors”; exchanging with different organizations and systems; transforming for a variety of purposes, such as searching or displaying; validating and certifying via digital signatures; rendering in various modes, including on paper and on multiple digital devices; and, integrating with other documents.
