I just wondered what Rioters thought of this list of ACTEWAGL sponsorships from their 2010/11 Annual Report.
I was a bit surprised at some on the list and although I hunted – I can find no dollar amounts or even the total spend.
My own view is that ACTEW Corp Ltd or ACTEWAGL should not spend a cent on these “sponsorships” – it should be a function of the ACT Govt through a Govt Department – open and transparent.
