Care and Support Services tender report out today - going to yet another re-convened meeting of the Finance and Resources Committee this coming Thursday ...
... and guess what: the whole programme is to be abandoned because of flaws in the tendering process.
Who would have thought it - certainly not Paul --- "I have said all along that we have a good robust tendering process that has been cleared by the lawyers at every stage." --- Edie, that's for sure.
And, as if the whole sorry saga hasn't been bad enough - the consultants report that came up with the stunning conclusion that this process has been a basket-case cost £80,000 :-(
... it's only 5-pages long: £16,000 per page :-((
What a bloody mess.
Heads really should roll.
