Why Tablets?
Comment by R1chard Jenn1ss on 12th June 2012

Why Tablets?
I'm going to guess: there is no project code, no charter, there is no plan on paper.

Lets look at an example:
That white cylindrical tube on the mast at City Hall.
Is that an antenna?
What is that for?
Was it done on a project?
What was the necessity?
How much did the TOTAL project cost?
Was the project successful from the initial plan?
What research was done?
Try and audit that, try a FOI request...

I suggest the City or Council or whoever with some accountable gusto do a project charter and post the plan on the City website. Kinda like a business plan before going to the bank... if you don't have one, often the bank turns you away.
