The problem isn't the lack of skills, it's the distribution

Oh yes. If they got themselves skilled managers who could handle talent rather than soulless consultants who will say "yes" to anything as long as they can rip off the government in change control and other hidden fees, and politicians who think that having an agenda equals to skills they would GET that security they were after, and at a cost that would not be an insult to the tax payer.

The prices the government pays for service should result in gold plated kit everywhere - instead it must have funded quite a few yachts and I don't see that end soon, however much that is in conflict with delivering the quality they need.
