Here’s another interesting link, this time from the BBC reporting on a House of Commons Public Accounts Committee report into UK government outsourcing. Feel free to be outraged when you read that the Ministry of Justice was outsourcing additional contracts to G4S and Serco at the same time the Serious Fraud Office and the City of London Police were investigating claims that G4S and Serco had overcharged the MoJ on previous contracts. Apparently the MoJ thought it was OK because the companies said they were “sorry” and paid back £180 million!
