This was, from it’s onset, a contract which was destined to be a major failure. Poorly planned, poorly organized, and with key personnel at their Ft. Irwin office quitting immediately after beginning the project. I have done several contract jobs, both here and overseas, and this was probably the most negative experience I ever had. These people employ a strategy that is not new.... pay a bunch of bodies x dollars, and charge the military 3x. Personally, I would not have trusted 1/4 of the 40 “mechanics” working on the contract with the ability to fix a broken wheelbarrow.
Pay was good, overtime racked up.
Horribly managed from start to finish.
