I am responding on behalf of Companies House to your recently tabled Parliamentary Question to the Secretary of State for Business Enterprise and Regulatory Reform.
Please find in the attached appendix the details you requested regarding IT projects currently being undertaken within Companies House.
The CHIPS programme is a highly complex bespoke development, which has been custom designed and built, to replace the existing bespoke application that supports the Companies Register.
The project, initially contracted out, was brought in house in February 2004. The original planned completion date for the in-house development was August 2006, but this date changed subsequently and I have detailed revised plans for your information.
Impairment reviews in the last two financial years have led to a write down in value of £12.1m. This represents the value of all contractual work undertaken on behalf of Companies House on the project prior to February 2005.

The Office for National Statistics compiles employment statistics for local areas from the Annual Population Survey (APS) following International Labour Organisation definitions.
Table 1 attached provides estimates of total employment for people resident in the. UK and in the Nottingham North Parliamentary constituency, by occupation. The figures provided are for the twelve months ending February 2002 and for the latest period, the twelve months ending March 2007. The source data used is the APS, using Standard Occupational Classification 2000 (SOC2000), The twenty-five occupational classifications are ranked according to the largest positive change in Nottingham North. Data prior to 2002 are classified using Standard Occupational Classification 1990 (SOC90). Consequently it is not possible to provide a consistent time series for the period requested.
Since these estimates are for a subset of the population in a small geographical area, they are based on small sample sizes, and are therefore subject to large margins of uncertainty. In this case, for the Nottingham North, the sample sizes are not sufficient to give accurate estimates in all instances.
|Total employment by standard occupational classification( 1) (two digit) United Kingdom and Nottingham North( 2)|
|March 2001 to February 2002||April 2006 to March 2007||Net change 2002 to 20 07||March 2001 to February 2002||April 2006 to March 2007||Net change 2002 to 20 07|
