Absolutely nailed it there. The useless public sector mindset just hands out a tender that embeds the 'useless public sector mindset' in the form of a contract. It happens time and again and the same old useless outcome still happens with a minor reduction in cost and the private sector contractor walks off with a profit by reducing the quality of delivered food service. Patients are very unhappy but public sector manager takes the credit for cost reduction and directors of private sector contractor count their bonuses.The problem there is that the contracts were structured in such a way that made it impossible for other companies to tender, and also that the duties and responsibilities implicit in the contracts have been consistently badly specified and poorly managed. And ultimately the same failing companies were selected for the work because they knew how to tick the right bureaucratic boxes, rather than on proven/provable ability to actually do the tasks that were required.
