Purchasing and Financial Management of Information Technology aims to significantly reduce the amount of money wasted on IT by providing readers with a comprehensive guide to all aspects of planning, managing and controlling IT purchasing and finance. Starting from a recognition that IT purchasing and the financial management often needs to be treated differently from other types of expenditure, the author draws on over 25 years of experience in the field to provide readers with useful mixture of good procedures and common sense rules that have been tried, tested and found to work. Many of these are illustrated by case histories, each with a moral or a lesson.

Purchasing and Financial Management of Information Technology provides useful guidelines and advice on whole range of topics including:

* IT acquisitions policy
* Dealing with suppliers
* Budgeting and cost control
* IT cost and risk management
* Specification, selection and evaluation of systems
* IT value for money

* Shows how to deal with suppliers
* Explains how to evaluate IT costs and benefits
* Demonstrates how to budget and control costs
