Somebody get these guys a Calculator

In its strategy to help cut costs at Public Works, the federal government awarded a contract worth $1.75-million. However, nine months later - it is worth $24-million.

Daniel Leblanc, at the Globe and Mail calls this a "shaky start."

Shaky start is right.

As the chief procurement department of the federal government, Public Works is an elephant of a ministry and NEEDS to cut its costs.

Hopefully the minister, er I mean the parliamentary secretary can explain some of this when the House resumes sitting in the fall. James Moore is going to be one busy guy.
