    5. 6. “ The problem is not lazy or incompetent people; it is red tape and regulation so suffocating that they stifle every ounce of creativity. The federal government is filled with good people trapped in bad systems: budget systems, personnel systems, procurement systems, financial management systems, information systems. When we blame the people and impose more controls, we make the systems worse.” Al Gore
    6. 7. “ The academic literature typically found the cost savings from competitive tendering to be between 10 per cent and 30 per cent (including when the in-house team won the bid) with no adverse effect, and sometime and improvement, in service quality.” The Julius Review, July 2008
    7. 8. “ In my contract, I have more autonomy than I had in the public sector.” “ Managing my contract, I have more freedom to experiment and innovate than I would have as a public sector employee.”
