re: Could Private IT Best Practices Save Feds $220 Billion?
The problem is most IT projects are touted as money savings or revenue increasing due to streamlining of operations in the beginning, but then the reality of hardware purchases, support costs, cost of support personnel (Programmers, DBAs, Systems Administrators, Project Managers, Process implementers, etc) always negate these savings. I won't even go into things like cost overruns, etc.
Until those issues are addressed, IT involvement just becomes a means to transfer money or spend more money than what it would cost to maintain the status quo.
