Dave Jones Absolutely spot on. The same could be said for several other departments who blindly import standard UK public sector practices without realising that we don't have the same bottomless pit of money to fund it. Education springs to mind straight away. Having said that, those imported practices were adopted locally at a time when money seemed to be no object.
