Letter: 'Drop a dime on crime' not very different

Regarding "GSA to contractors: Drop a dime on crime"

Well I guess that one way to destroy a federal contractor's chance of getting business.

Normally after a contractor "drops a dime," the inspector general  informs the government of the disgruntled contractor and then tells the contractor that they do not have the authority to discipline or make any changes. Then as a fix, the contractor is summarily dismissed at the first convenient opportunity.

Well that's how it worked with smaller federal contractors in the past. What has changed?
