  1. Guardian: There are italics throughout the text. Do you want the italics removed?
  2. Guardian: I just saw your post with the strike-throughs. The software had a hiccup which I an correct. I am on my way out the door. If it isn't fixed within minutes, I will fix your post when I am home again. The conversion of the word document added lines of puncutaton that I must carefully eliminate. I will complete my editing when I return. This is going to take me several sessions to edit. It won't be as you hoped but it takes a long time to remove all the mess. Bob
  3. I began working in 1971. A year later, I completed my trainee assignments at GAO, and was forced into something called the Procurement and Systems Acquisition Division -- pronounced "P" sad. I couldn't figure out what I had done for GAO to stuff me into P-sad. Actually, my trainee assgnments ended at the end of a month and P-sad was the only place that was left for a new trainee. I have no regrets for being stuffed. Anyway, when I started in P-sad I remember people talking about someone named Ernie Fitzgerald who became famous in the late 1960s. After talking with Vern yesterday, I thought I would do an internet search on Ernie Fitzgerald this morning. I found that Ernie Fitzgerald died at the age of 92 on January 31, 2019. I believe it is important for a relic like me to introduce you to other contracting relics from the past. Then I found this wonderful article with a 43-minute C-SPAN video of Fitzgerald from 1989. This article and video are provided by the Project on Government Oversight (POGO). So here is POGO's: A Tribute to Pentagon Whistleblower Ernie Fitzgerald.
  4. I have added a new article to the Articles page entitled: Professional Reading: Negotiating Advice from Gordon Wade Rule with an introduction by Vernon J. Edwards. Please read it.
  5. This site is back online after additional opportunities for thrills. Major upgrade is in place.
  6. There is a major upgrade to the discussion software. I am going to install it now. There was a problem earlier that caused a server error. I will try again now. If there is a server error, I will try to fix it as soon as I can.
  7. There is more than one effect of the partial government shut-down on federal government contractors or their employees. These may include late or missed pay, increased costs from a delay in the contract work, impact of prices from vendors or subcontractors quoted to the prime and now changed, effects on an acquisition that was in process and now delayed by the shut-down. I cannot think of all the possible effects on government contractors and their employees. Since the federal government may partially close its doors once again at the end of the week, you may experience more of an effect.

  9. Ji: Joel must be given special credit for posting here while in a tree-stand.
  10. Alone in a tree-stand without the FAR?
  11. Although GAO's bid protest statistics were issued in early December, I was focused on personal issues. I realized I missed it and posted it here now.
  12. There have been 98 recommendations made by the 809 Panel. Does anyone know if any have been discussed, accepted or rejected?
