OFT calls for information on the supply of information and communications technology to the public sector
On 3 July 2013, the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) issued a call for information on the supply of information and communications technology (ICT) goods and services to the public sector. The OFT is keen to ensure that competition in this sector works well. It is seeking information on the structure and operation of the public sector ICT markets in order to understand the ICT products and services involved, who supplies them, the structure and operation of these markets (including, in particular, barriers to entry and to switching) and the degree of competition between suppliers. The OFT invites information and evidence to be submitted by 18 August 2013. It intends to announce its findings and any proposed further action in October 2013.
