The report has now been published by the Cabinet Office:

In general the report is strong on criticisms, weak on solutions. 

It cites an anonymous IT contract for hardware, and software development. 

"The principal contractor subcontracts the majority of work to another major supplier. Therefore there are two profit margins.

"Work is charged for at a rate of more than £1,000 per person per day, which is well in excess of market rates.

"It is a poor quality contract with no provision in the contract to reduce the annual amount payable should the development worknot be required.

"This contract includes services that are no longer required."

It's far from clear whether the Green report will make any more difference than the concerns expressed by Nigel Smith, the former head of the OGC.
