A lot of information to put up, but if it really is everything, then good.
I mean if a council only has to post spends above £500, how many do you think are spending more on double bookings to keep prices below that amount? Example, I'm going on a business trip to iuno, somewhere in europe. I fly over and return, the flight + return costs £525, to it gets posted. OR I can fly one way there, one way back costing £300 and £250. Overall it works out more but doesn't get listed.
Or cutting corners, we need to buy a new blah, a good one will cost us £700, or we can get the second hand one which will need repairs of £80 every other week for £400. Costs the county more, but doesn't get listed because it's more smaller payments. A company I used to work for did this all the time because it was easier to get past management, we had an item of machinery which needed repairs every month or so, and not cheap ones, a couple hundered quid a pop. Or we could have bought a new one for £6000 or so, big payment at first, but it would have paid for itself within 2 years.
Anyway I think if they do something like this, then it'll force them to avoid making these stupid mistakes which wind up costing more in the long run.
Still wish they'd switch all their comps to linux though.
