Sir Philip Green Public Sector Procurement Furore
Sir Philip Green has ruffled a few feathers yesterday in his interview on the BBC with Robert Preston
He says he's uncovered is a culture where there are grotesquely inadequate controls of spending on everything from mobile phones, to travel, to property and paper.
The budgets he looked at are worth £191bn in total - and he believes billions could be sliced off that, if the government did simple things like centralising purchasing and monitoring expenditure properly.
It will probably shake up those who supply the the public sector as well.
