The U.K. Infrastructure and Projects Authority’s annual report (PDF) assessing the state of 133 major government projects that have material, long-lasting impact for the public, was published earlier this month. Among the 133 projects are 29 information- and communication-technology projects worth some £10 billion (US $13 billion) over their projected lifetimes. While the government is counting on these technical projects to achieve significant “cost savings and efficiencies” in the way it operates, possibly saving as much as £35 billion per year, the results suggest it may be waiting awhile for those savings to appear.
