Code of Everand website

Simon Dickson made this Freedom of Information request to Department for Transport

The request was successful.

Simon Dickson

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to request information about the 'Code of Everand' online game, www.codeofeverand.co.uk, launched by the Department in November 2009, with the objective of teaching children about road safety.

My specific questions are as follows:

- What has been the total cost of the Code Of Everand project in each year since its inception, reportedly in 2007; and projected annual costs for the remainder of its anticipated lifespan?

- Can you please publish monthly figures for the total number of registered users of the game, and total active users per month, for each calendar month since its launch.

- Can you please also publish Google Analytics reports on site traffic for each calendar month since the site's launch in 2007, using the service's function to 'Export' as PDF.

- It was reported by Edge Online that the project was 'on the brink of cancellation twice'. Please provide documents and correspondence related to these two decision points, detailing why project closure was considered; and why it was ultimately decided to continue.

- It was also reported by Edge Online that media agency Carat had been 'doing a merry tour around the academic institutions in the country to find a consortium to evaluate it.' Please indicate which consortium, if any, was ultimately tasked with evaluating the project; and publish any evaluation reports.

For reference, the Edge Online article I quote above can be found at this address:

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Simon Dickson

A not unreasonable request to delay the response by 7 days, due to the Christmas break. I think it's fair enough.
