Following massive success in the USA, is it time for UK Government to scrap the multi-billion corporates and hand over IT development to its schools?


CAP system: £200million – not working

NHS System: £14bn – not writing

Passport System

Immigration System 

TFGM

3 school kids wrote a computer system for the US government. It took 3 months and worked. OpThe Government admitted a professional procurement would have cost millions and taken two years.

So why is the UK Government  wasting millions on computer systems that don’t work, posting the same corporations to produce failure after failure,  when school kids can deliver working systems are a fraction of the cost?

Is it time to scrap the corporations and hand over the development of Government computer systems to our schools?
