There are several possible mechanisms, eg they could make a fixed sum per room or paid a fixed sum.Whats in place for them booking a hotel not listed? oh right they have to look up the hotels themselves.
What other mechanism? Its "free" remember.
Have to show VFM? Did you join the Army yesterday? Just as Carillon, PAYD companies etc do?
The MOD thinks a lot of things are acceptable, that why the armed forces are in shit state.
I reckon HRS said something along the lines of "hey MOD, our service isfFree, you wont get cheaper than that and all the gullible mugs in the MOD who are responsible for signing shit contracts thought they were getting a bargain. Clearly you didnt read other people comments on this thread.
What a shit defence of the governance of CHBS, she did get caught after 17 months and repeatedly abusing the system, round of applause for such quick reactions
The tax free lump sum could have been done well before it was implemented though, but no it couldnt possibly work because there were plenty of **** excuse why it couldnt.
Is a good enough reason, its easier and possibly cheaper to book their own?
VFM - you have a fixed lens and an inability to look through a different one but all the Carillion and the PAYD companies have all demonstrated VFM otherwise they wouldn't be on contract.
What's shit is your assertion that governance doesn't work, it's probably not even relevant here, an individual who knew the system, played it. It would be no different if booking.com was used, a MOD GPC would bee required to reserve the room.
WRT the tax free lump sum, the only reason we got it (H10?) was because of the amount of people dying or seriously injured. Politically it was the right thing to do at the time, hence the constant drive to reduce now.
