Successfully launching the online publication of the Chilcot Report

28 July 2016

Having worked closely with the Iraq Inquiry team for several years, we are proud to have played a part in the historic online publication of the Report of the Iraq Inquiry.

We designed and built the new responsive Inquiry website, providing a secure CMS and resilient infrastructure for the Report’s release. Maintaining security and safeguarding against the early leak of any findings was integral to the success of this project.

Hundreds of thousands of people have since visited the site and downloaded content from the extensive publication.

With the final report consisting of 2.6 million words spread across 12 volumes, it was vital the website would be swift, accessible and easy to navigate. A custom search enables users to narrow down their search using criteria such as time frame, author or keyword – making it simple to find specific content and passages.

Set up in 2009 by then Prime Minister Gordon Brown, the aim of the Iraq Inquiry was to identify any lessons that could be learned from the 2003 invasion of Iraq. After seven years, the report was released by the chairman of the Inquiry, Sir John Chilcot.
