Senator Larry Craig Sparks a Procurement Debate …

By now, you've probably already read about Senator Larry Craig's bathroom episode in the Minneapolis airport. I won't go into the details on these pages. But what is noteworthy about the incident from a Spend Management perspective (hat-tip: Tony Poshek) is how the Minneapolis airport is investing $25,000 to put in new dividing walls that stretch to the floor to avoid such incidents in the future in the most "trafficked" bathrooms (one wonders if warning signs suggesting narrower stances and no foot tapping would have been cheaper and done the same trick). Now for all those government purchasing experts in the audience, would this fall under an emergency indirect or a capital spending budget line?
