It need not have come to this

Yes it's a mess and the problems are those of a lot of big IT-related government projects.

It need not have happened like this. They could have brought in the right skills but no, they let a committee of energy companies design it. These guys are still living in the 20th century.

So they are installing useless displays instead of facilitating actionable insights that independent companies can deliver via apps.

Oh well. They can set up another enquiry but it won't change the way big projects like this are (not) managed. Some would say this is corrupt but I think incompetent is a better word.
