White House Reportedly Dismissing Key Contractor

bigSpark Re: They are all the same (284 comments)

True, I've seen programs heavily underbid and staffed with recent college grads with very little programming knowledge. The goal was to produce non working product to then milk the O&M contract for years and years.

White House Reportedly Dismissing Key Contractor

bigSpark They are all the same (284 comments)

Accenture, IBM, Booz Allen , Lockheed Martin , SAIC are all very similar when it comes to large project execution. The name of the game is to win a proposal by any means necessary then control the costs. In a large project it is never about the developers, what makes or breaks a large gov project is the quality of the functional analysts and tech management. If conflicting reqs and features can be argued down the proj will succeed.
