    I know someone who works in England in Procurement and is always independent of the entity that employs them.They are able to see clearly where the waste is and where the best deals are to be had without the additional sucking of air through teeth or protracted meetings as to why their dept can't do it.Its simple arithmetic and an unbiased mind that has a lot of knowledge about where to get what from who and how many people it takes to change a light bulb.This is a great idea and could be easily done on an Island of this size.

    I second this wholeheartedly.
    I would include also stricter scrutiny of contractors work and firm enforcement of standards.
     This has been deplorably lacking with the growth of outsourcing.
    Good suggestion Manx voter.
