We’re a small, informal group working within the UK Parliamentary Service. We used to have one staff member and two contractors but now we’re just two staff members instead, together with a lot of people who help us out and make the space for us to work in.
The work we do is prototyping: it’s an experiment that’s extended month by month. We don’t have a fixed budget and we don’t operate within a project framework. Our work is overseen directly by senior business users and we are accountable them and the technology department.
We’re not sure what’s going to happen next: we aim to create value and to explore.
About the Millbank Systems bit: well, Parliament has a few offices on Millbank, but apart from that it really doesn’t mean much. We just wanted a domain name we could spell.
