I've seen two conflicting stories recently on the security contract with G4S for the Olympics:
The first claiming no penalties for underperformance were written into the contract:
And another stating there will be penalties paid after all:
So here's my question. Why is government contracting so fuzzy in general?
I saw another video where an MP was asking why G4S "still wanted to claim" the management fee.
Why is it a matter of what is "wanted" and not specified in the contract?
