Government Procurement Office has serious questions to answer over shambles
The debacle over the Aran Islands air service contract does not reflect well on the much-vaunted Office of Government Procurement (OGP).
The office was established last year to manage public spending on goods and services and save money for taxpayers. But in the case of the air service contract, it has presided over a shambles.
The contract is a big deal. More than 38,000 passengers flew in an out of the islands last year.
