    I was reading about flat earth news earlier and thought of the following press announcement to run.

    ” Paper-based procurement today announced an impressive 80% share of the public sector market in Scotland during 2007-2008 fiscal year. This is based on an estimate of the non-pay spend in Scotland public sector running at £ 8 billion per annum.

    Despite the advent of the world wide web, and web 2.0, e-procurement in Scotland’s public sector has only a 20% market share after six years. However, this is something that the e-procurement sector, and ICT industry have awarded.

    But with 80% of the market after 301 years since the Union, paper-based procurement in Scotland seems here to stay. What percentage of government procurement is on paper in your country ?
