It's not so long ago that we reported on the British Council kissing goodbye to £85,000 because someone thought to have a petal-soft cheek was buying lorry loads of loo paper. This has now been topped in Nigeria (and who knows how many other places) by some clueless berk passing invoices for cleaning for over seven years probably totalling in excess of £375,000. You can see how it happens. They have as we have just seen long term monopoly contracts that act in nobody's interests, and are wide open to being taken by people who realise that the org knows nothing about money because it is so used to being given it by the taxpayer. You and I would notice if someone spent £85,000 more than usual on toiletries. Not the British Council. And £375,000 on unsupplied cleaning? Again, not the British Council. Fortunately, even those two frauds added together add up to a lot less than the subsidy the taxpayer provides them with every day. Nice work.
