Citra role 'blighted by old antipathies'

Some Citra members allowed their perceptions of and past dealings with the NCVO to prevent them from even trying to work with the ICT Consortium, Carrington stated.

He acknowledged that some Citra members were concerned about the structure of the consortium.

However, Carrington concluded: "It's a sad feature of this whole saga that some leading organisations in the sector decided on the basis of 'impressions' not to enter into negotiations with the consortium and therefore chose not to test the reality or legitimacy of the proposed structure of the hub."

He added: "There have been times since July 2004 when the actions of Citra and the position taken by its chair have not always lived up to the group's aspiration to bring the sector together."
