Government finds it impossible to break systems integrator habit

Despite calls from inside government and the IT industry for a more equitable distribution of government IT contracts, with SME suppliers given a fair crack of the whip, nothing is changing.

The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) has stuck with old ways of working and will contract a single outsourcing giant for its desktop management services contract.

DCLG has been given the go-ahead to refresh its IT services under the government’s Desktop 21 contract next year, which contains just three suppliers – Atos, Fujitsu and HP.

See the full story here.

According to sources Atos is going to win the DCLG.
