IT Projects

From Sunday Times 16 April 2006. Translate jargon from government

"We will seek to accelerate the pace of development as available resources permit" - It's going to take years and go way over budget

"The costs to date are for computer infrastructure and software. There will be other costs for implementation" - You don't get much for £6 billion. We're going to need a heap more money if this thing's ever going to fly.

"Our suppliers have been unable to maintain full availability without interruptionn during integration of multiple systems." - The software's useless and we haven't enough terminals

"Technical issues preclude reliable figures on compliance and throughputt." - This is monster is so out of controll we no longer have any idea what's going on.
