"Staffordshire County Council had just published a tender for a contract 
worth up to £28 million for a three year contract divided into 16 lots:
"    servers; storage; ICT spares; workstations; portable devices; Apple 
iOS devices; Microsoft software; network infrastructure components; 
managed wireless; cabling components; data cabinets; peripherals; 
support partnership; curriculum software; network management; and 
bundled items"




Aside from illegally specifying particular proprietary software, this is
rather telling of localgov profligacy:
"The most expensive lot will be for workstations, which will cost 
between £6.4m and £12.8m, according to the notice"
