We’re all aware of — and perhaps have participated in — the criticism of today’s model of contracting with the federal government.

It takes too long; costs too much; has too many rules; has too many checks and balances; has too few checks and balances; doesn’t utilize commercial best practices; doesn’t work as well as the commercial model; doesn’t involve the [insert favorite functional specialty here] enough in the process; doesn’t provide enough training for its acquisition professionals, etc.
