If no one said All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing.”, then someone should have, because it is true. The same thing goes for bullies and injustice. As scary as it can be, if you are going to consider yourself human, then you have to speak out for what it right.

If any government is going to espouse openness and accountability a critical part of the process is to ensure the public money it spends on contracts with the private sector is accounted for. It also needs to ensure the tendering process is above reproach.
.
To do this it needs to ensure both the tendering and the contract allocation is part of a publically disclosed system. Whilst the NSW (Australian) openness and accountability system is not without fault, it does require the publication of all calls for tender and the publication of an increasing amount of information regarding the contracts awarded, which increases in regard to the value of the contract.
.
Is this way both the tenderers and the general public has the right and the ability to examine the process and question anything of concern. You can view the awarded NSW Government contracts valued at $150,000 or more and the current calls for tender at www.tenders.nsw.gov.au
