Letter: Government deserves poor performance
Regarding "Report: Contractors should get more oversight
First, the comment below is personal and does not reflect the view of DRC.
would like to start by giving credit to the author for including the
last two paragraphs. The article and findings are very one sided,
focused only on the contractors. The government has something to say
about the performance of a contact.
The greatest frustrations
I have, as a contractor, is to see mediocre to poor performance
continue to be rewarded by the government. In my opinion, if the
government rehires a contractor company who has not performed up to
standard in the past — the government deserves the poor performance.
All other companies performing up to standard now have to pay for the
underperformers both with lost contracts and additional bureaucracy to
justify our existence.
The bottom line, the government needs
[to] record, document and eliminate subpar performers and 90 percent of
what your article was based will be eliminated.
These are my personal thoughts.Don Stevenson
