The Conservatives have recently proposed moving to systems of procuring major IT projects that are more modular and operate within relatively restrictive ceilings (no contract more than £100 million, for instance). Widespread opportunities exist for public agencies to extract better value by moving from tailor-made or 'a la carte' systems to more modular and standardized systems.
