As Budget season arrives, we are reminded that Federal Government ICT is a highly concentrated market.  

In 2008-09 the Top 25 suppliers accounted for 73.1% of the market by value.

This is an even more concentrated market than was seen in 2007-08 when the Top 25 suppliers accounted for 63.4% of the market.

Intermedium’s Federal Government ICT Market: Supplier Overview Report 2008-09, revealed a continuing downward trend in total contract numbers.
