    And if you are in the USA, are you referring to Sarah Palin's daughter?

    I can't imagine why they wouldn't have their contract renewed. If this was the original winning bid, it is so un-innovative I struggle to understand how they could have failed to deliver it successfully enough to such that they don't get pretty much automatic renewal.

    If true then it's most likely to go back to competitive tender and A N Other plc will take over, unless there are ex-Authority key players 'gone rogue' who've put together an alternative proposal with LA support.

    Any TUPEd staff go MIA in the last couple of months?

    I should add that I have no idea about what is going on in Bristol, or, these days, even BSF in general. Glad to have left that behind me.

    Indeed. "1. If you must rant keep it clean. NO profanity will be tolerated." I'm out of line.

    I'm pretty sure as a "very senior bod in a very large consultancy firm" you are more than capable of conveying the reality of BSF without swearing. There are many, many discussions, views and opinions on this very forum that do just that!

    Kinda surprised at the lack of information regarding this. Does make me wonder if the things being said up here are the full story, though. :/

    I think youll find its more of the needing to be careful what you say on a public forum about the managed provider. They have bigger scary layers!! Lets just say its been a interesting experience in Bristol! For both the LEA and managed provider.

    Yeah, I was talking more about the publicly available information from the LEA and the company (or lack thereof). I don't expect any of the employees to comment, just as I wouldn't if the situation was similar up here. I take it you're part of one side or the other, given your comment about it being interesting?
