Letter to the editor

Those "brave souls" that have something to say about the Navy Marine Corps Intranet "are normally uninformed and always unresearched" were words used in a letter to the editor by Lt. Col. Mark A. Dalla Betta to describe those who chose to withhold their names. [See archive of NMCI letters to the editor.]

I agree with his comments. However, I am one of those who will be losing my job and possibly be going to EDS. I feel for those "brave souls."

I am in the trenches and have my "uninformed and unresearched" opinions regarding NMCI. I firmly believe that NMCI is needed. How we get there, however — by EDS or government — we could have planned and implemented better.

Because we have chosen the EDS path, we (in government) need to either follow the plan or get out of the contract as early as possible. In my command, we have been postponed at least three times due to delays in testing and so forth.

I believe EDS is motivated to do the best job possible and earn its money. Let's give them the opportunity and stop hindering their performance. Follow the PLAN!
