Oughton, but not down
What next for John Oughton, head of the Office of Government Commerce, the body that regulates and scrutinises government procurement of things like IT and consultants, who is leaving at the end of March?
At a Public Accounts Committee meeting recently he said his immediate plan was to go and watch some cricket. ‘Immediately, I shall be heading for the BA2155 to go to watch some World Cup cricket,’ he said.
Sensible man (and TS is still angling for an invite, if anyone wants to seriously impress us).
After that, the feeling is, and let’s just call this one a racing certainty, that he will end up at a consulting firm.‘I am not going to do anything in the short term,’ Oughton said.
