The World e-Parliament Report 2012 presents the latest data on the use and availability of systems, applications, hardware and tools in parliaments all over the world. The findings presented in the report are based on the results of the Global Survey of ICT in Parliaments 2012 conducted by the Global Centre for ICT in Parliament between February and May 2012. 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.



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.
