  1. He's supposed to be on his way to Brazil. He needs to find a country that does not have extradition rights with us.
  2. Try this. It only goes back to 1999. It doesn't answer your question but if you want to illustrate an increase in complexity, this might help. On the left is the FACs since 1999. On the right are the FAR Cases. Federal Acquisition Regulation Research.
  3. The thing that caught my eye with that protest, besides the length, was the publication date--September 18. That was Sunday.
  4. See Case Affirms Rights of Contractors Facing Debarment at the NDIA's Business and Technology Magazine. Precision Metals Corp. v. U.S. Dep't of Def., 22-CV-3761(JS)(ARL) (E.D.N.Y. Jul. 22, 2022) The case I linked is the extension of the temporary restraining order (TRO) and it is in the District Court for the Eastern District of New York. The current TRO ends in early September. The procedures for a debarment are at FAR 9.406-3.
  5. Don: I started correcting the code in your blog post. That is when the software was making up its own code with decorations in 2010. I see what was done and I think I can fix it. I'll try to get back to it later.
  6. I looked at one of the beginning lines in the case . . . I haven't looked at the arguments yet but my immediate view is that vendor lists as technical data is nonsense. Then I thought of the use of "technical evaluations" of offerors price proposals that we used 50 years ago. I wouldn't view that as technical either. I can still remember a GAO auditor from our Philadelphia region who did the old GAO pricing reviews using his term "techeval" whenever he saw me. That was in the early 1970s.
  7. Here are examples of how is it used. See Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company v. U. S., ASBCA No. 62209, August 3, 2022. Also see King Aerospace, Inc., ASBCA No. 60933, 19- 1 BCA ¶ 37,316.
  8. Thank you all. That is the case. There is an article about the affair from that time in the British Independent. The Spy Who Conned Me': a real-life thriller in Surrey
  9. Years ago, I read a Court of Federal Claims case in which a second party was trying to get payment from the CIA because he had contracted with a CIA agent in the field. In the case, the second party could not prove the agent ever existed because the agent was using an alias. It was an amusing predicament but I never posted it here. I've searched several different times over the years but never could find it. I would recognize it if I read it again. Can comeone identify that case and let me know what it was?
  10. And here comes some more: H. R. 7900 - National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023. Passed House and crawled into the Senate awaiting further perfection. S. 4543 - James M. Inhofe National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023. Introduced in July 2022 and ready for more perfection in the Senate. If that doesn't register, check out this page and read some of those GOBBLERS. Most have no chance of becoming law buy some may.
