    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people that you put in charge of task orders. In theory these people are in place because they understand the interaction with the customer and how best to reach the results for the contract. Do not pay exorbitant prices for people that have no practical experience and will not learn the job they were hired to complete. Senior personnel are only beneficial if they are more knowledgeable than a junior analyst.
