    Time Bandit
    I was a Navy Defense Contractor for 10 years before I was laid off from funding cuts, 5 was years in DC. I worked in 3 programs: PMS350, PMS394 and lastly PMS450, even though I didn't carry a degree I highly enjoyed my job. The article notes "He instructed the military to figure out how to become more efficient, especially around acquisition and in light of shrinking budgets." I have a suggestion, get rid of the do nothings and redundancy. I saw my share of those piddling around the office, twiddling their thumbs and collecting a paycheck. When I offered suggestions to streamline work load, I was told that they weren't in business to cut work...they needed to create work. I guess because I didn't have a college degree, I wasn't a voice to be heard. I am no longer in the contracting world but I do miss not working for the Navy, awesome job indeed.

  • A better acquisition workforce,
    like any "better" workforce requires "better" pay. Politicians outside of the DC Metro area think you can have a better workforce for less than what that workforce is making now. You are not going to get "better" anyone if you don't want to pay them "better" wages and you keep attacking their pay and benefits. This battle over a "better" acquisition workforce has been on-going for decades. Congress will always support those that pay them better. And guess who that is . . . the government contractors.
