View Full Version : Can you say: conflict of interest?

During the last decade or so, there has been an effort to make the Department of Defense leaner and meaner, which has resulted in a reduction in the amount of employees in the payroll.

The workload has not decreased, however, and to make up for the difference, the Pentagon has outsourced a huge amount of their work to private contractors.

Included in this work is the production of the Department of Defense's budget by defense contractors including Booz Allen Hamilton.

In other words, some of the people who could benefit from the budget are writing the budget.

Does anyone else find this disturbing?
