Its difficult to find what an Open and Transparent BC Liberal Government is up to these days in the Procurement (BC Bid) business of handing out contracts without a bid, sort of reminds me of parts of the BC Rail sale.
How does one find what BC Bid is up to? First, you have to have a lot of time on your hands. Secondly, you may want to focus on a specific field? Third, maybe focus on the BC Liberal leader candidates Ministry before he/she resigned to become Premier? Fourth, look at everything because Christy Clark hasn't been in Government since she bailed out to look after the family.
Step ONE: Search with Google for bc government procurement website. If you think you can go to Gordon Campbell's government and just type in Procurement, it isn't going to happen.

"Summary Details: Notice is hereby given by the Ministry of Attorney General (Justice Services Branch) of its intent to contract with Queenswood Consulting Group Ltd. to develop a business plan to support the delivery of virtual Justice Access Centre services."Open Mike de Jong is no longer the Attorney General, so he shouldn't be questioned on this, but may the public assume here that it was the DEPUTY Attorney General who made this decision, to go without an OPEN bid to all parties? Sounds a lot like a repeat decision of the Six Million dollars that was paid to settle the BC Rail deal by two Deputies when the "Sheriffs/Marshalls/Ministers/Cabinet" were out of town.
