Contracts? (Score: 1) by email@example.com on 2015-11-28 02:32 (#VZP4) In its zeal to push the â€œsee, government is inherently incompetent and inefficientâ€ narrative, TFA completely neglects to mention the role of private contractors in all that. Whoâ€™s landing these plums, and why arenâ€™t the contracts written with milestone payments, performance mandates, and clawback provisions for if/when the contractor fails to deliver? And we know integrating cruÅ¿ty legacy systems is no cakewalk, but thereâ€™s zero analysis or technical detail of the cause of these failures. How do you spend upwards of half a billion dollars and have nothing to show for it? Whoâ€™s rolling around in that money now, and why arenâ€™t they behind bars, or at least being sued?
