Some within the industry say that big outsourcing deals have all but dried up and that large suppliers are worried. 

Nevertheless there is a refuge for some of the biggest IT suppliers at the Department for Work and Pensions which seems content to keep awarding big contracts to the companies that have monopolised its technology strategy for decades.

HP, Accenture, IBM and CapGemini are safe in the DWP hands. Indeed the Department this week announced a £316m desktop deal with HP.  EDS, which HP acquired in 2008, has been a main DWP supplier for decades. What about G-Cloud?
