Initially, the combination of ICT and Government does not seem a successful one. That impression is reinforced by the conclusions and no fewer than 34 recommendations listed by the Temporary ICT Commission chaired by Ton Elias in its research report ‘Naar grip op ICT’ [Towards control of ICT]. The fact that it can actually turn out differently is evident from the report ‘Lessen uit ICT-projecten bij de overheid’ [Lessons from ICT projects in the government] from the Netherlands Court of Audit. In the report, a sizable project in the national government is designated by the Lower House of Parliament as ‘good practice’. This project was carried out using Info Support’s Government Software Development Infrastructure. The Government Software Development Infrastructure is a version of the Endeavour development infrastructure specifically designed for the government market.
