Legislative process in the Parliament is complex and multi-layered. The Parliament of Latvia (100 elected members), also known as the Saeima, includes 17 committees, 11 subcommittees, and 56 support groups. More than 300 staff members work for Parliament, and are housed in four buildings connected via a local area network. Approximately 3,000 legislative acts are processed during each parliamentary term.
Projects including the Personnel Management System, Pass System, Document Management System, Legislative Tracking System and Debate and Voting System have been implemented since 2001.
«Saeima’s integrated information system is in line with the most advanced parliamentary information systems. I am very proud to see many visitors form foreign parliaments coming to Saeima and seeing our system as a potential model for their own systems»
