That day – 18/08/2009 – Governance

I feel abit like the British Broadcasting Corporation with its BBC: On this day 1950-2005. But here goes:

<1 in 3 Govt tenders not awarded to lowest bidder, says Lim Hwee Hua>

The article came from Channelnews Asia. But it seems off site now. Then Second Minister for Finance, Miss Lim stated that government ministries should not turn away vendors simply because their prices slightly deviate from the market average i.e. not the cheapest. To reinforce the point, she mentioned that there was no ’empirical evidence’ tying under-performance to vendors who provided the cheapest prices.
