The DoH pointed out the opinion of the National Audit Office (NAO) that the Enterprise Wide Agreement between Microsoft and the NHS represented considerable savings to the taxpayer over normal Microsoft rates and those charged by Microsoft to other government departments.
There are two NAO reports evaluating CfH:
1. "The National Programme for IT in the NHS" (ref. HC 1173 June 2006).
2. i) "The National Programme for IT in the NHS: Progress since 2006" (ref. HC 484-I May 2008)
ii) "The National Programme for IT in the NHS: Project Progress Reports" (ref. HC 484-II May 2008).
These are hefty reports and it will take me some time to get through them.
