Bearing Point in Alexandria, VA received a $99 million firm-fixed-price contract for Advisory and Assistance Services for Air Force Smart Operations 21 (AFSO 21), which is based on both Lean and Six Sigma business process improvement tools. AFSO 21 is the centerpiece of the Air Force strategy to understand and optimize the basic processes round which it organizes.Knowing a few friends that do/had worked in that industry/consulting - I really want to know how many members of that $99 million PowerPoint rangers have ever tried to maintain combat aircraft? Just wondering.

Bearing Point is a consulting and accounting firm made up of spare parts spun off of KPMG with large bits that used to be know as Author Andersen Consulting, BTW. Very big in the Beltway.
