Letter to the editor

In the Feb. 4 Intercepts, you quote Steven Ehrler, executive director of the Navy's Information Technology Program Executive Office, claiming that the average NMCI seat cost is $2,000 a year?

If you go to the EDS Web site and check costs per month for the Red, White or Blue seats, they are much more.

Even the thin client seat -- the cheapest seat -- is $2,335.92 a year, and that is a basic seat with no options.

Many test sites are still awaiting rollout of NMCI seats after two years. The Navy will not admit the big mistake of this cash cow contract.
