Cabinet Office to buy IT outside of Parliamentary Scrutiny

An advertisement
in the Official Journal of the European Union on
13 April 2007 says that the eDT wants to create a
catalogue of suppliers to support its work with major
Whitehall departments, in particular HM Revenue and
Customs, the Department of Work and Pensions and the Department of Communities
and Local Government, as well as the wider public sector.
 
It is aimed at providing frameworks for the research and development sections
of large computer corporations, SMEs with a strong reputation in the public and
private sectors, and companies looking to develop or reuse existing systems in
the public sector. The categories are planned to cover strategic consultancy,
technology, specialist data centre services and security testing and
verification.
 
In the short term, key purchasing organisations such as OGCbuying.solutions and
Partnerships UK are expected to promote the opportunities offered by the new
frameworks. Eventually OGCbuying.solutions could take responsibility as the
contracting authority.
 
The eDT is responsible for projects initiated by the Office of the e-Envoy,
including the Government Gateway, ukonline.gov.uk and the DotP initiative. Its
focuses on technology innovation and provides the products and services to
government departments aimed at making the internet a primary channel for
interaction with government. (source).

Unaccountable Power, command and control is being centred on Downing St, as it would be in a Dictatorship.

This means that IT projects can be undertaken which
fall outside of the usual Parliamentary scrutiny committee’s that vet the work
of OGC.
