The owners of ITIL, the UK Government Cabinet Office, have gone out to tender with a 'joint venture'.
The alarm bells are starting to ring. One of the fundamental strengths of ITIL is that it is non-proprietary, although a few questions were raised with the appointment of APMG, who not only manage the Accreditation Scheme but are also an ITIL training organization in the market place.
The tender document, which is detailed below states that the 'joint venture company will develop and exploit the Intellectual Property'.
The tender is not giving much more away until a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) is signed.
