The UK Government has an IT policy which says that no single contract
should be worth more than £100 million. The idea is to try to break up
cosy mega-contracts that favour large incumbent companies, in order to
allow a wider range of suppliers to get a look in.
is a result of a bunch of FOIA requests to different departments, to
try to get an idea of how well this policy is being implemented. As you
might expect, the results are somewhat mixed.
Anybody know anything about the NZ situation?
