Believe it or not it was Jan 2011 - oh and it was also under budget and erm actually we were able to include some extra functionality which was on the wish list.

So I guess the initial project scope, budget and timescales must have been rubbish then

When a project is longer that two years, it can be very difficult to be more accurate.

....and you've completed your 1000th meeting, written a couple of Word docs and began the initial splash screen.

I love public sector contracts.

Private sector sinecures are much more lucrative.

True, but most public sector IT projects run longer, so it's £500 per day * 4000 days invoiced, is not a bad sum of easy money.

True, but depends on which particular branch of the public sector you're in. That said, there are fewer carriages on the public sector gravy train these days than there used to be.

However, in terms of money invoiced measured against expected workload, public sector wins hands down.

They'd done all that sh!t with the original supplier. We're just here to dig them out of the mire.
