Tenderwatch – Wasting Ratepayers Money

Really! A freaking countdown clock!

Sometimes you have to wonder about the sanity of some of our paid officials. I hope who-ever is responsible for this got left off the hire list by Mark Ford.

GETS Tender Watch Notification for Wednesday, 3 March 2010

Interesting Tenders, I presume the answers to the first are very, very basic requirements, we want to keep in sync with historic places surely?

I hope they mean breaking rocks for Tender 2.

Surely they only need to order picks, shovels and wheelbarrows, maybe a few brooms for Tender 3?

Beehive - Experts focus on Child Abuse

Unfortunate Headline

Oh Dear, Paula have a chat to your staff, because I don’t think that headline is too flattering.

Interesting swell though that between 2008 and 2009, a mere nano second as the clock ticks over we had a massive 19,596 abuse cases. Perhaps New Years Eve is really bad for paedos on patrol for pissed kids.

We actually don’t need too much work here and Paula could save her department millions in dollars and time by simply implementing a Name and Shame campaign for abusers and then summary execution for the kiddy-fiddlers.

Tenderwatch – Excuse me, Where Asia?

Can’t really see the point of this, perhaps I should send it to http://engrish.com/

Anyway I can save them heaps, it’s over there [points], now are you aware of Asia?

Where Asia?

Tenderwatch – Bounty Hunters

The GETS tender system has been quiet over Christmasbut now the slumbering civil service is awaking and little gems are coming through.

Nice to see the Ministry of Justice embracing Bounty Hunters, although they couch it in government new-speak so as not to alert the liberal pant-waists.

Ministry of Justice ;ooking for Bounty hunters

TenderWatch – This one takes the cake

Oh dear Lord please give me strength. Would someone, anyone, in the government please sort this shit out, please I beg of you, this is almost daily now.

I mean WTF? I’m good at understanding Governmental NewSpeak but this is complete shite.

TenderWatch – Oh Dear Lord when will it end

I don’t think I need to say anything about this the foolishness speaks for itself. The MORST one in particular is silliness extreme. Close second is MED.

TenderWatch – More idiocy from Government departments

Complete idiocy from the Department of Labour. Haven’t they heard that ALL the major web browsers, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Opera and have been since 1995. As for the reporting solution there are many Open Source solutions tht are also free.

Clearly the plonkers in the DoL IT department are bereft of any nouce and the the whole palce should be outsourced immediately.

TenderWatch – More pointless Tenders

Look at these Tenders for MoE. Complete and utter feel good, airy-fairy, mumbo-jumbo politically correct bullshit.

Hell when i went to school the “smart tools” used by the teachers to better support student achievement, ie paying attention, were a variety of canes kept in the Deans room on the A Floor. The good teachers let you go and select your own cane, the arseholes chose for themselves and trust me there is an art in choosing canes that are about to wallop your arse.

TenderWatch – Ever heard of OpenOffice or PDF?

Another ridiculous tender.

Clearly OnTrack hasn’t heard of opensource software OpenOffice which would be essentially free and can output documents in pdf format automatically without the need for any other expensive software ripoffs like Microsoft Office.

Ever heard of Open Office?
