Commons inquiry into Govt IT – today’s session

A good oral evidence session today at the House of Commons Public Administration Committee inquiry into government IT. It became quite “sparky” at times, with a full-on debate about procurement, SMEs, open standards and the integration (or lack of) of technology and public policy.

Audio if you missed it is available online here.

Some coverage has also already appeared [UPDATED]:

Hopefully the uncorrected official version of today’s oral evidence will be online by the end of this week. I’ll post an update when that happens.
