A REPUTABLE CIVIL engineer (Pr Eng, MSc Eng, MBL, FSAICE), with some 20 years of public and private sector work experience, attends a tender briefing meeting - dignified and portraying the ultimate professional in dress and demeanour.

While RAL scrambled 30 chairs into their atrium, 300 people are in attendance. Some have driven three hours to be there. Among the 300 are engineering professionals and at least one SAICE past president, and shady tenderpreneurs.
