NAMA should keep it simple
IMAGE is everything these days. The National Asset Management Agency (NAMA) is looking for a company to design and produce its annual report, which is due to be published in July.

The Punt, perhaps being a little cynical, wonders why corporate organisations need to spend so much money producing such glossy publications to contain what are essentially their financial results.
And these days most people read reports online, so after the documents are launched, they'll no doubt find themselves tucked away on a bookshelf gathering dust.
It's a frequent occurrence in the corporate world.
And it's even more questionable when taxpayers' money is being used to fund the exercise, which most cost-conscious corporates in the private sector have long since dispensed with.
To quote the legendary architect Mies van der Rohe, less is more.
