The Table Office digital service enables Assembly Members and support staff to submit items of business for consideration bilingually, such as questions to Ministers, statements and motions, using a simple interface on any device such as mobile, tablet or desktop, providing complete flexibility. The status of an item can be easily monitored during its workflow through submission, approval and eventual publication to the online Record, where it is accessible to the public.
The Table Office system integrates seamlessly with another new cloud system called TRO. TRO enables the Assembly’s 47 strong transcription team to collaboratively transcribe chamber and committee debates, providing integrated translation between English and Welsh and allowing them to publish the Record of Proceedings to the online Record instantly.
The Record (record.assembly.wales) brings all Assembly business together online allowing the public to search by keyword, date or Assembly Member, helping to meet recommendations from an independent advisory panel, Digital News Taskforce to improve the transparency of Assembly systems.
For the Assembly, these were the first projects that used Agile principles in design, development and delivery. Users worked closely with Method4 to deliver services incrementally, prioritising high value functionality, leading to a solution that met their needs and helped drive the success of the services.
The MySenedd digital service has been shortlisted for the Wales technology Awards 2018!
