FDM Group speaks out against the government waste of public money on IT Projects

FDM Group speaks out against the government waste of public money on IT Projects

The government is reportedly squandering up to ten times more than the standard commercial rate on IT projects, according to a group of MPs.
 
The Public Administration Select Committee (PASC) today revealed that the government has become “overly reliant” on an "oligopoly" of large suppliers resulting in a "recipe for rip offs".
 
Committee chairman Bernard Jenkin stated that the ineffective system, which some witnesses labeled as a “cartel,” has "led to an inexcusable situation that sees the government waste an obscene amount of public money."
 
The PASC report called for the coalition to "break out" of its relationship with its current pool of large suppliers and engage with small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs).
 
International IT services provider and SME, FDM Group, couldn’t agree more.
 
FDM Chief Operating Officer, Sheila Flavell, said, “By dealing with smaller IT services providers such as FDM Group directly, the government can certainly cut out the middle man and ascertain what the best prices for IT services really are.”
 
The committee has addressed the need for government IT expenditure to become more transparent, allowing external IT experts to challenge and advise the government on ways of saving money.
 
FDM welcomes this measure and with over 20 years worth of IT industry experience under its belt, the company would certainly be a suitable choice to offer this advice.
