Are we supposed to be impressed?

The Scottish Government gets carried away with a couple of new acronyms. Here is the press release:
Aberdeen's Inverdee House, home to two SEARS (Scotland's Environment and Rural Services) bodies has been officially opened by Rural Secretary Richard Lochhead.
The opening marks the latest SEARS co-location following the success of last year's Golspie opening and will ensure closer working between the two organisations.
The new building is also based on an eco-friendly design and is one of only five buildings in Aberdeen to have achieved a BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) excellent rating.
Yes, some idiot civil servant wrote this deathless prose and, believe it or not, it was approved by a Scottish Government Minister.
