Here is how the outsourcing bubble works. You have an annual budget for IT and when it is internal it is an annual sum. When you outsource it, you can pick the cycle to outsource and create the illusion of saving by multiplying the low point in the cycle by 12, true the internal spending was still lower and that was with carrying over needy asset costs from higher cycles but you had the higher cycles added in, rather than a lower cycle multiple by 12 to create a fantasy annual budget.
So they knowingly lied for kick backs, you can not make those mistakes by accident, all a straight up lie for kick backs. Everyone in governments around the world were doing it because everyone around the world was being bribed, from corrupt politicians to corrupt political appointees they were feeding the beast who was paying them, corrupt corporations.
Now they have chaos, so temporally rebuilding internal system to fix things, only temporarily of course and once fixed, bam, straight back to corruption and outsourcing. There is also a second item in the agenda, a secret one. They are having huge problem recruiting for IT in 'lack of' intelligence services, the professionally paranoid because face it, who wants to be a great big privacy invasive dick (there are a few of course but as a routine they can never be trusted with anything), not have one mind you (in fact the opposite is far more likely the reality, hence the need to spy on everyone else's 'er' business), just be a knob head prying into everyone's private lives whilst being totally spied on yourself (when you are professionally paranoid, no one trusts any one).
So employed in one section of the civil service and transferred to another, take it or quite and have your loyalties questioned and you status as free citizen challenged.
