    'poor value' outsourcing deals

    Apparently, the Govornment is being stung by 'poor value' outsourcing deals.
    Gov't stung by 'poor value' outsourcing deals - ZDNet.co.uk
    and this is without BSF !

    meanwhile the conservatives are calling for more open source and a less centralised approach to IT projects:

    maybe there will be some light at the end of the tunnel

    Hardly news. A lot of people are waking up to the fact that outsourcing isn't the magic fix it seems to be.

    Just some talk to win votes. I doubt they'll act on it.

    Outsourcing = passing off problems to someone else to make it their problem. The problem is that you don't tend to get very good service so companies realise that it's better to pay a bit more to have support in house and receive better service do it boomerangs back.

    probably not, they don't seem to have any policies, but it might help to wake up govt.
