I blogged earlier this week about consultants being slammed by the government. In this post I went on to reveal the views of some in the IT outsourcing industry about Intellect providing training to government procurement professionals to improve their commercial awareness.
I won’t repeat what was said about Intellect but you can read it in this blog post.
Here is Intellect’s response to these comments. “We haven’t been appointed by government to help improve skills. What we have done is independently launch our market access and skills initiatives which will be run and funded by Intellect. These are aimed at helping improve how government uses technology by providing a channel by which people working in government can access the innovation and expertise that exist across the technology industry.
With regard to Intellect’s skills, we do, of course, have a highly skilled team here, but, more importantly what we will be doing is tapping into the wider skills of the ICT community.”
