except they'd argue

"There are also cases in which there is a public interest-

in protecting the interests of individuals or private organisations (for example in protecting personal privacy or sensitive business information)"


So they'd just refuse, claiming commercial in confidence and we'll be none the wiser.

The Health Department's Robyn Cahill says the current evacuation arrangements are an interim measure while a new tender is sorted out.
"We will have had the opportunity to truly examine service demand and growth and that we would be in a position to actually deliver a service that meets that demand and growth in the Northern Territory."
Given the length of time that NTAMS was in operation one would think that NT Health would have a pretty good idea what the "service demand and growth" is by now......or am I just expecting too much.

Has the wet season kicked in up there yet?

Yes, and of course the contract specifications have already been written - and tendered on!

Spin can be placed on any information to hand, and not to hand. Essentially those that know and won't "spin" are not able. Those that can and do, will.

This whole "commercial in confidence" thing is starting to really sh!t me...

Got a good question for a politician (especially an incompetant politician)?

Want to shine some light on an issue, by asking for sensitive (sensitive why?) information?

My advice - don't waste your breath!! It will just be "commercial in confidence"...

Don't despair...the current NT media discussions on whistle blowers might encourage some courageous souls to expose the situation. (are there any dmo's with balls left?)
Word is that CF have had a dreadful serviceability record (fixed and rotary), Gove and Katherine left without a service for long periods (days, I mean, not hours) putting extreme pressure on the road ambulance service and health workers across the Top End.
Word is also that whilst the department are saying that a decision will be announced before Christmas, they cannot afford any of the offers and as long as CF keep the media spotlight off the senior departmental heads until they figure out how to proceed, the current service will keep rolling on and on.......... until the next time some white person dies and the CF media spinners cannot contain it or there is a damming coroners court finding against the department for failing to oversight their contractor and protect the interests of remote Territorians.

I am no fan of CF but there was one very deep pothole out at Gove. The other operator could not deal with it but CF have now filled it in and smoothed it over. Productivity will probably rise due to it but Prune readers beware, this pothole types as much [email protected] as he talks.
