Ricardo- Thanks for telling it like it is here. Kemph's actions up on the Hill in June were nothing but a disgrace. "50-60% of contractors with zero sales" and the solution is killing off new offers because schedules and certain SINS are over saturated - REALLY!! Why doesn't this loser deal with the 50-60% instead of shutting down new offers?? No mention of the fact that GSA is collecting 3/4 of 1% on $39B in GSA sales. Biggest horror is no push back from industry, the Hill or the suck-up procurement coalition which is nothing more than a "front" for Washington Management Group!

Mary has been at GSA for decades and is part of the problem. Nice talker, nice looker but it will be same stuff, different day with her. She's done nothing constructive for the Information Technology Service. They need some external leadership to rebuild a better management team. The new dude, Tangherlini, is polishing a turd with changes like this.
