By all means --- the real billet savings have to be taken from sea going billets.
The Pentagon was inundated with so many studies in 2010 that it commissioned a study to determine how much it cost to produce all those studies.That is a beautiful phrase.
Now the Government Accountability Office has reviewed the Pentagon’s study and concluded in a report this week that it’s a flop.
The study of a study of studies began in 2010 ...
The GAO found only nine studies that had been scrutinized by the Pentagon review, but the military was unable to “readily retrieve documentation” for six of the reports.
The Department of Defense’s “approach is not fully consistent with relevant cost estimating best practices and cost accounting standards,”
That would fit for so many problems we have in the military. On the Navy side of the house, I think we can use that description to explain away the Tiffany Navy, IAs - all that goodness.
Let's look at that again;
“... approach is not fully consistent with relevant cost estimating best practices and cost accounting standards,”Translate it in to Latin,
nostram est non plene stat cum pertineret sumptus aestimationis optimum exercitia et sumptus rationem signa... and put it under PEO-LCS and you have the start of some nice heraldry to go with it.
Wait ... PEO-LCS needs more than a motto; it needs a martial crest. What would fit? Well, the consistent selling point for LCS as of late has been its ability to run away from hostile fire ... oh ... this is easy then. We can use Sir Robin's crest.
You photoshop wizards get to work ....
