                                              Internal accounting costs (SAP) for running this project at DLWC came
 time?                                         to 72 percent of planned internal expenditure, yet there was no category
                                               in project plan to attribute this expenditure to.

                                              Project proposals involving third party software should only build on
                                               existing, proven technologies and tools.
