First Release of full PI Inquisitive Eye Internet TV Broadcast features Colin Cram Discussing UK Government Procurement Policy Shakeup

Posted on January 18, 2011


Cabinet Office minister, Francis Maude, speaking at a meeting attended by 31 major government suppliers including BT, Hewlett Packard, IBM and CapGemini, claimed that large-scale bespoke IT systems – many of which have gone significantly over budget in the past – would henceforth be replaced by less expensive and “off the shelf” offerings.

In this 60 minute PI Inquisitive Eye TV interview which has just been released in its entirety, I talk with 30 plus year veteran of the UK public sector Colin Cram about the practical implications of the announcement.

Also included in the broadcast are video excerpts regarding Sir Philip Green’s appointment to study the government’s procurement policies and practices, as well as case studies of successful public sector programs in both Scotland as well as Virginia.
