Microsoft menaced with GDPR mega-fines in Europe for 'large scale and covert' gathering of people's info via Office

Not wishing to exonerate MS in the slightest but don't the Dutch Government have any responsibilities in this? AFAICS it's they who required their employees to work with this. It may well be that MS did this sneakily behind their customer's back but I rather think that if it were any other employer it would be the employer who would be facing charges and taking out civil proceedings against their supplier for breach of contract, always providing that the contract said they wouldn't do such things. And if the contract was silent on such issues then the employer might even lose.
