Let (Make) the Customer Do It ?

Major Range Test Facility Bases (MRTFBs) are government owned entitities that do military testing. The core of their work force is military, civilian employees, and support contractors. Their customers are acquisition program program offices, and defense (provider) contractors such as Boeing, Northrop Grumman, or Lockheed Martin.

As they try to do their job, if enough military and civilian and support contractors cannot be maintained on the payroll, they have to rely on the providing contractors to get work done. Maybe there’s some conflict of interest here that give me the heebee jeebies. This sounds sort of like Microsoft saying they can’t get good software engineers, so they will have to count on the customers to get the debugging done. Yes, that’s one product/service model, but my prediction is the customers will look elsewhere.

The thought isn’t well formed yet…
