A hefty bill? How many millions have they spent?
In the 2012/13 year a contractor was paid $10,155 for three months’ work.
$10,155 for three months? That must be the most lowly paid contractor in the history of contracting.
The SIS also spent over $8000 printing three brochures since 2009, including ”A Guide to Weapons of Mass Destruction.”
Around $2,700 per pamphlet. $8,000 over five years. Frugal, not hefty, is the word that comes to mind.
