London, UK – 13 April 2011: The UK government’s failure to embrace the latest proven private sector technologies is costing the public sector billions in lost savings.

Three weeks after announcing an unprecedented offer to aggregate public sector expenditure data from all major central departments for free in April, Rosslyn Analytics and QlikTech are disappointed to announce today that senior government officials have refused to quickly address – and at no cost to taxpayers – highly publicised shortcomings in government spending data.

The above is an excerpt from a press release from UK-based Rosslyn Analytics, announcing that their offer to provide the Cabinet Office with a free government-wide spend analysis had been declined.

Joining me from the UK is 30 year public sector veteran and the author of the seminal paper “Towards Tesco” Colin Cram, who will provide his views on why the government is turning down an offer that it would appear they could not (or should not) refuse.
