"Nice work if you can get it" - and this time, silicon.com isn't talking about sloppy journalism, although it would fit just as well. I'm clearly in the wrong job. Here, Compaq are being lauded for managing to get £5 million from the UK government for not much. To get the whole story you have to read the NAO report, which notes in one paragraph (out of a lot of pages) that the initial procurement of the Government Gateway was flawed, but it went on to be a great project - delivering more, for less and sooner than it would otherwise have done. Nearly 500,000 registered users as of the end of March - 4.1 million more and we'll have Friendsreunited.gov.
