London Bridge Has Fallen Down!

Back in October, in our post on how London Bridge is Falling Down, we brought to your attention a post by the public defender that discussed how The Garden Bridge was, again, put on hold, which it should have been given that a review did find major breaches of good procurement process. From allowing a supplier to submit a bid after the formal deadline, to a lack of documentation, to changing the evaluation process once bids were received, to treating suppliers differently – as we said, if any unsuccessful bidder had challenged in court there is no doubt that they would have won their case.

But now it seems, as per a recent post from the public defender, that we are now at the point where The Garden Bridge Loses Treasury Support and London Bridge has, indeed, fallen down. And maybe this time it’s for the best.
