There's a small trough coming and it's not the weather
> The UK's Met Office has handed seats on a framework contract worth up to £30m to 32 suppliers in a bid to develop a common data platform over the next four years.
£30m split over 4 years between 32 suppliers? That's hardly going to keep Deloitte, KPMG et al barely going even if they just assign interns to the work, let alone a partner.
And then there's BAE on the list - £30m is just an overrun to them let alone a whole project.
