Government IT not fit for purpose?

Joe Harley says only one third of government IT projects succeed.

"A DWP spokeswoman later played down Harley's comments. She said he was quoting from an independent report in which success was narrowly defined as the project being on time, to cost and meeting the specification exactly."

Perhaps the ones which weren't on time, budget and spec should have been called 'differently successful'.
