Now I'm not Government bashing by any means, but seriously, all the time and effort it took to rid the government departments of trained and integrated professional IT staff & finally they realise it will actually be a cost saving to have them back in house. All they needed was an amount of CIO/IT Directors to lead the internal IT departments and take them forward.

I would love to see the comparator between the last 10 years of outsourced Govt IT and the last 10 years of staffing costs of in house IT.

I feel a freedom of information request coming on...

Gartner, you must have done an amazing job with the Government Spending Review!
