Beat me to it. That said, as to not scuff up on Steak too much, a lot of gov contracts are going with Best Cost instead of Best Value these days. I imagine it's getting rough to staff a lot of contracts with quality people.

True. Seems like most stuff is going LPTA these days. Reminds me of that old saying "Remember your weapon was made by the lowest bidder."

even best value contracts are often nothing more than LPTA in disguise..

It is very, very, rare these days that either the DoD or DoS selects a vendor that doesnt come in with the lowest price.. regardless of how the solicitation is released..

To paraphrase a friend of mine...."So that's why we always wind up with shit gear? Well at least we get a cool looking pelican case out of the deal."

Hopefully that's changing...

Is Lowest Price Technically Acceptable (LPTA) Always The Best Deal?

Is DOD moving away from LPTA?

When I was heavy into construction, I took some major hits by going LPTA/lowest bidder...

IMO theyre paying "moving away" lip service...

Youre seeing more contracts released BV vs LPTA these days than you did a couple of years ago... but.. the vast majority of the awards are still going to the lowest bidder..

You offer the government 20% more value.. at a 5% higher cost.. and they still pick the lower priced option almost every single time...

Companies understand this.. so most continue to bid things exactly the same way they did prior... and race to the bottom..

there are some services and products where BV gets real play.. but they are very limited..

Within the DoD specifically there has been a pretty serious battle between end users (customers) and contracting shops that actually award the work.. The end users are getting fed up with LPTA (whether "real" LPTA.. or a BV that is really just an LPTA with another name assigned).. they want quality services and products.. but.. the contracting shops are still pushing out awards to the lowest bidders (their performance is evaluated on how much money they can save the govt.. where the customers performance is evaluated on whether or not they can actually accomplish the mission)..

In the vast majority of cases that I have been involved in.. contracting wins those battles.. and the customer is left trying to figure out how to make the best of a bad situation..

Nailed it. Sucks when the contracting shop can override the actual government customer.

Now is $6..LOL

The G2 on the price chop is because the 'customer' wants to keep the same folks but not pay as much.. We were hoping to find folks with Retirement pay on the side who wanted to live there.

$75k is livable but not great, man this would be a good gig if I didn't have to move to Hawaii ;P Even have worked joint w/ R.O.K. Navy at UFG. I wonder how the day to day cost of living compares to SF Bay Area. I make slightly less right now and it doesn't really feel like enough to be very comfortable.
