I still don't understand

What is the value of outsourcing on this scale? Sure, if you're a 5 man outfit, its not gonna be cost effective having a dedicated IT team, but the Met has more than 43,000 employees. How does giving the money to a number of private companies - who will just blame each other for every problem, help?

Surely £100m a year is more than enough to run the IT in house?
