Advice to Management

Learn to manage you customer. Local management lost millions of dollars because of inability to manage the customers expectations. NCI should offer the customer a list of solutions to implement, not the other way around. Also, document when a solution is rejected;many times NCI takes the blame for not implementing the solution that was presented in the past but had no proof to show the government that the plan was submitted.
