Thanks for the details. Sadly, the Dutch aren't alone with their "long list of notorious screw-ups" when it comes to IT.

On the Audit report end, my point is that these bogus arguments that you point out, though indeed not fully credible, are no surprise given the general role of auditors and how they work and think. And how they think is surely not like software salesmen or IT project managers (and I'm not advocating at all they should be), but that's the 'information' out there.

Love Raleigh, too, but Tallinn, Estonia, beat everyone by a decade.
