I suspect this is yet another item the British people should thank the LibDems for.
Transparency of government is not exactly a Conservative hallmark is it?
It would appear to be a Major Projects Authority that lacks actual authority to dig into major projects, get reporting data and generally find out those
thieving con-tractor ba***rds outsourcers are actually doing with taxpayers money.
Note also that other classic of government.
Got a flagship project whose total fail will make a Minister look stupid but is FUBAR? Simple. "Re-scoping" of the project is the answer IE moved the goal posts.
BTW people point out that industries track record of successful delivery of big projects is (probably) no better should note 2 things.
1) Look at the size of those UKG projects. 10s of £Bn, with most of them an annual spend of 100s of £m. How many UK companies are that big. The main banks? The big retailers? Who else?
2)Those private sector projects spend customers, shareholders and borrowed money to f**k their IT.
UKG project spend tax payers money to f**k IT.
IOW those IT f**kups literally put several % on UK tax payers tax rates.
