In Australia, Government IT outsourcing contracts are not made public.
CSC's George Bell gave some interesting evidence to the Senate IT
outsourcing inquiry on Monday.
CHAIR - You referred earlier to the agreement or contract your company has
recently signed with the US government on the National Security Agency. In
the context of contracting with the United States government, those
contracts would have been made public, wouldn’t they?
Mr Bell - I believe they have a very aggressive freedom of information
regime in the US, so to that extent perhaps so.
I think there is something in that for all of us.
