Upgrade to Office 2013 Now Available


Upgrade your computer to Office 2013

Following a successful pilot with Members of the Administration Committee, all Commons Members and their staff will shortly be able to upgrade their computers to Office 2013. This is an upgraded version of your familiar office tools and some new ones. It includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access and OneNote.

The move to Office 2013 is part of a series of steps to give you more mobility and choice in the way you use ICT services. The next step will be to migrate your mailbox to Office 365, making it quicker, easier and more convenient for you to access your Parliamentary information.

Choose when to upgrade

From Thu 08 May, this shortcut  will appear on your PICT-issued computer desktop.


You will be able to choose a convenient time to initiate the installation process, which usually takes between 30 minutes and 1 hour. During this time you will not be able to use your machine.

Help and Support

PICT will send you guidance, including factsheets. Briefing sessions are available on request for Member and Members staff and there is more information on the Parliamentary intranet.
