Re: District Council

We needed some large monitors at TfL - the outsourced IT people refused to supply them at any price and refused to allow us to connect any such device we might procure through other means to their equipment ("we only support monitors up to 21").

The only corporately-sanctioned means of having a larger monitor was to purchase your own monitor, your own PC, set up an entirely separate network infrastructure with its own separate internet connectivity and support it all yourself. Of course if you suggested you needed a budget for this it would immediately be refused for duplicating the services that had been outsourced to save money...
