John - you may not agree with the way the tendering process has been run and there may be other ways to do it, but many people have experience of tendering processes, and your suggestion to date that only two of the twelve board members are competent in this regard is nonsense.

I did not suggest only two.

I wrote that I am aware that two of the board have strong business and commercial experience : the devil is in the detail.

So having named two board members would you care to name any others. After all not everybody's CV would obviously refer to procurement experience, but a great many people have to be trained or made aware of procurement issues even if they have no direct responsibility. The devil may be in the detail, but the silence about others invites inferences to be drawn that you might not have intended.

Please feel free to do that yourself.

I note that you have "run-ins" with others in this place on previous postings. I have no desire to engage in forum ping pong. This will be my final reply to yourself on this matter.

Ah bad editing on my part though I think you know only too well what I meant to write. If you don't want to answer a relevant question then why are you here asking questions yourself? Dialogue is a two way process is it not? One or perhaps both of us doesn't seem to understand social media.
