    Well done Hari for opening up the accounts on this and expressing what is a collective problem so clearly. We too have taken a hard look at the mounting expenditure on fee bids, which are becoming increasingly onerous, invited bids to do design work for a small fee, and competitions. We discovered about 10% of turnover was spent on bidding. It doesn’t take a genius to see this isn’t sustainable.
