11 Title: Public sector IT procurement savings Summary & article: The majority of public sector IT budget holders believe that the government could save over £1 billion over the next few years on information and communications technology without affecting front-line services. Cisco¶s recent survey on the Public Sector Network (PSN) Preparedness Survey revealed these figures. Currently each public body designs, develops, installs and maintains its own network which means there is less standardisation, more fragmentation and service delivery is more expensive. This does need to be balanced with making network projects too big and unwieldy to manage. The PSN preparedness report indicates that there are some key elements involved in budgeting:

Value, not cost ± the public sector is more interested in getting value for money and competitive rates than the actual cost. Collaboration is important ± inter-department communication and more joined-up thinking. Service transformation ± service delivery is so important, more so than automation to reduce costs or increase productivity. IT procurement ± this could be improved to focus on business benefits rather than technical aspects.

Budgets are still of huge concern with 87% admitting that they are having trouble identifying and finding funds. At Hardware.com we are able to deliver against these concerns, particularly with regard to the pricing of network hardware.
