Bus/Financial
German term or phrase: nachgelagerter Bereich
The full sentence is "Bundesministerium mit großem nachgelagerten Bereich". This is a CV, and this guy apparently did some IT consulting work here. In his quest for commercial confidentiality, he's removed all my Anhaltspunkte and any chance of figuring out what he means by myself.

Could "nachgelagert" have something to do with a supply chain? As in, lots of smaller departments are dependant on the ministry's IT software decisions?

Thanks for your help

The guesswork starts here :-)

The "große nachgelagerte Bereich" could as well be a "comprehensive range of services [service functions]". This *could* relate to a supply chain, as you say, but I'd rather remain vague.

"Downstream" wouldn't work here IMHO as this is too technical to fit your political context.
