Re: District Council

It was just the same at Traffic for Losers (TfL) - procurement through a central department who were entirely clueless. The prices they paid for basic IT gear, for office equipment and basic office consumables were eye-watering. Nobody cared, though - if you didn't spend your annual stipend, it would be reduced the next year, so March was always a frenzy of buying wildly over-priced stuff that you "might" need in the next year.....
