I wish that governments worked this way. The reason why M$ is able to
make inroads into the education world is that the governments rely on
working with big reputed organization. So the better PR you have the
bigger and more reputed you are in the eyes of government. Even if you
approach as a group to the government the roposal is hihgly likely to
be shot down by the babus given the excuse of lack of reliability or
Apart from it, the tender could be made to suite only a very limited
subset and might require X numbers of experience in performing the
same duties. So unless you have couple of babus supporting this task,
IMHO it is going to be a futile effort. But if babus are already
supporting this cause, then M$ might not have made its way so easily
The hidden harmony is better than the obvious!!
