After Post Office scandal, Fujitsu said it would stop seeking government contracts. Like this one?

As far as I can tell, this is not true:

My recollection – check it here – is that Fujitsu itself said it would not seek new government contracts while an inquiry examines how its faulty Horizon software helped the Post Office wrongfully convict more than 700 sub-postmasters of stealing from the government-owned company.

Private Eye seems to think so too:

It seems the Eye was right about the company still bidding for contracts – although what it won is potentially worse than the speculation above.

Here‘s The Canary:

The National Nuclear Laboratory, which is owned and operated by the government, has awarded the firm a £155k contract for ‘software support’ until 2025…

The contract, published by procurement data provider Tussell, is for “software support” and is due to run until 31 March 2025.

You’d think that the government would want to make sure that the National Nuclear Laboratory was a safe and secure environment.

Clearly … not, though – as they’ve now given Fujitsu a contract.

Why did that happen?

Fujitsu is accused of having caused serious harm to hundreds of sub-postmasters, harming the reputation of Post Office Limited in the process, by selling faulty software to the company and – it is believed – using it to tamper with the accounts of the affected sub-postmasters.

It should be barred from bidding for any government contracts until its role in this affair is fully understood and those responsible brought to book.

Ah, but some are already pointing out that Fujitsu has a partnership with Infosys, the company owned by UK prime minister Rishi Sunak’s father-in-law, in which his wife has many shares.

They reckon they can see an incentive for Sunak to continue granting contracts to Fujitsu.
