    As mentioned previously, it seems that if SIF was legislated for, as a result of the high cost of implementation, some suppliers would have to withdraw from this market.

    This surely would lead to an anti-competitive situation. Isn't this therefore something that should be investigated by the Competition Commission as part of their role is to take action where competition is being unfairly restricted in a particular market?

    Sounds like it to me.

    Competition Commission vs Open Government

    Tiger: e-GIF
    Some of you with other industry experience may know about e-GIF (electronic Government interoepratibility framework). e-GIF explicitly defines 'open systems' demands open access for data freely and standards for exchange of data between products, suppliers and systems. This goes back 1999/2000.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E-GIF and http://www.govtalk.gov.uk/schemasstandards/egif.asp
    Hmm..
    Reading the above two arguments and looking up the web sites from both angles - I think any government stick should come from e-Government and e-GIF. e-GIF goes through the heart of government policy for open systems & interoperabiity. There is a mandate to exclude companies from accessing public funded programmes and it will have immediate effect on companies who choose not to tow the line with OPEN SYSTEMS / INTEROPERABILITY policies - like Capita. And Capita's argument about having special deals with suppliers, goes no where near what open systems are all about.

    Isn't surprising why Becta or DCSF isn't building their work/efforts on SIF to be backed up by e-GIF mandate??? Is it just an example of disjoint government or what?

    In case many ask what is e-GIF - see FAQs web page on e-GIF

    It is a God sent to all who only want to access the very data that belong to us!
