During Mike Cummings time in MIS, the Company remained an annual 50 millions dollar turnover company.
No wonder Mike was a solitaire expert. Some incidences come to my mind, which are cardinal sins to a professional;
1) On one occasion MIS did not invoice or rather forgot to invoice for its last slab of payment due from the client. The fax message from the client read, "please advise if you are interested to invoice by COB today".
2) MIS supplied some Marine items to a Company in Singapore of $ 10,000. For over 3 months MIS did not invoice or rather forgot to invoice. I think it was more a case of a butcher being asked to do an engineering job. Must be that one of the Bahrain based personnel was assigned the PM's duties and did not know one has to invoice for work done.3) Jacquline Salis comes to the writer for an advise to set up an invoice tracking system
4) Muneer Khan received salary in Karachi Pakistan for over a period of one year literally just like that. Muneer wrote after receiving a message from MIS, I was wondering why in the first place MIS paid me a salary in Pakistan. Muneer was assigned on a call out basis in the MIS Marine yard.
5) Maroun Seman a Syrian Instrumentation Engineer continued to receive salary for 8 months in his bank account after having left the job.More on the Dubai International Airport Boarding Bridges saga in the next post.
