The Department for International Development's website was set up at an initial cost of £10,000. Operating costs have been £16,000 per annum and expenditure has been within the allocated budget. The topics covered are: "Who We Are"—an introduction to DFID; "What We Do"—an introduction to DFID's work around the world; "Working with Us"—information for users seeking to work with DFID; "News Centre" —information on press releases, speeches etc.
The average number of hits per month is 55,000. Maintenance costs for the next three years are likely to be around £12,000 per annum. The website will be re-designed over the coming year at a cost of up to £50,000.
