Iarnrod Eireann – is this another FAS scandal?

27th October, 2009

Spent the morning reading the Baker Tilly Report into Iarnrod Eireann procurement strategy. I’ve never read anything like this. To quote a few lines ‘on going non compliance’ with procurement procedures, ‘explanations for discrepancies arising are not being independently investigated to a satisfactory extent’ and so on.

We have the Chairman of CIE, Dr John Lynch in front of the Transport Committee at 2. I’ll have plenty of questions to ask him.
