That would require departments to follow procurement policy and involve IS and IT at the start of any project rather than trying to sneak things in under the radar until the point of the delivery guy turning up to IT with a server on a truck with no notice. Or as is more common these days a helpdesk call demanding access to a free Dropbox account to transfer kids/vulnerable adults personal data to a non-EEA supplier which then puts a spotlight on projects which are often very risky if not illegal.

And this is government so no one really gives a shit about profit or clients or enforcing policy.
