We have previously reported on the Good Law Project's good work in investigating the manner in which "our" government placed PPE contracts.
Today we highlight their work in investigating the placement of Test and Trace contracts.
"This new evidence corroborates reports in November from unnamed insiders that there was a VIP channel for testing supplies. The total spend on Test and Trace is £37bn, dwarfing that for PPE"
Of course, if sub-optimal procurement procedures were used for one set of contracts it is reasonable to investigate whether they were also used for others.
It seems that they may have been.
