A major investigation into software disasters has resulted in what the CSSA calls a "ground-breaking partnership" with the Cabinet Office.
The two organisations are working together to produce reports on why so much money has been wasted on large public IT procurement projects in recent years. Computer Weekly, which has broken news of many major software disasters, has provided one of more than 40 submissions to the CSSA report, which will be published in May.
This will be followed by a report from the Cabinet Office on the issue. "If there is any divergence it is likely to be on what government and industry should do," said e-Management's Charles Hughes, who is leading the CSSA inquiry.
Hughes heads a high powered team including Jim Norton of the Institute of Directors, Bill Robins of Marconi and Brian Collins of Clifford Chance.
