Bidding Process For MOD Contracts Is Flawed Says Union

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Are BSM bidding to train tankies now ?. They taught me (at MOD expense, QTo chap examining), but who teaches the tankie teachers ?.
  2. Civil servant alarmed at loss of civil service empire! That is the shocking type of headline we all really get excited when we comes from the same headline genre as "Turkeys refuse to vote for Christmas" and "Professional footballers 'spit, swear and roast young girls' reveals glamour model".

    I would have more sympathy for the PCS case if they could show me exactly how efficient they are at providing these services, relative to the privatised companies. I regularly quote for work against in-house bids and am usually the cheapest bidder - even allowing for TUPE. Can the PCS explain this strange phenomenon to me? Probably not, because they can't usually find their ARRSE in the dark using both hands...
