Another Thatcher legacy? Or Gordon's?
From a post to the PSF Noticeboard:
Can Local Government accounting be simplified to make day-to-day management of services more businesslike and easier? Do we really need to employ accountants in order to have the IT department charging the HR department for the PC that is sitting on someone's desk in a corner of a room? If someone takes an air freshener to a different building is it really a cost to the organisation?The poster asks: 'Does it make analysis of the true cost of services difficult?' Er, doh.
Gawd, I hate bureaucracy ...
