Scrap big government IT

1st July 2009

The Centre for Policy Studies has called for more open standards and source development in IT, arguing this could lead to savings of 50% on government IT expenditure.

In a new paper, the right-wing think tanks dismisses the government’s Transformational Government strategy as disappointing, unsuccessful and at odds with what citizens need. Instead of using centralised IT, it should hand personal information back to individuals and suggests they use services such as Microsoft HealthVault or Google Health to store their health records and to communicate with their GP or hospital, eliminating the need for “the NHS database”.
