AS A taxpayer for the past 34 years and an avid cyclist,
I find it hard to comprehend how the National Parks Board's (NParks) bulk bicycle purchase
was value for money ('Khaw okay with NParks' purchase of $2,200 bikes'; Thursday).
should have been less than $1,000
The National Parks Board's (NParks) explanation
that because only one vendor had responded,
and therefore Brompton bicycles (the cheaper of the two options offered)
were chosen, is questionable.
