My guess is: Bad news. Govt departments are already awash with 'consultants', they are the first ones to go as they are off the books and there are no unions or redundancies to contend with. Most govt IT suppliers are having their contracts renegotiated downwards, so again bad news. The govt IT dept I work in is going into 'lights on' mode, i.e. maintain existing infrastructure, no new unessential projects except hardware upgrades or consolidation projects. There are NO new projects in the pipeline - IT is just not seen as a front line service, is seen to be poor value for money (i.e. NHS, Libra) and hasn't delivered the efficiency benefits that were long mooted.
