    In fact, it has been the growth of contracting that has made things far worse. In fact, I would recommend, from my experience (and it is pretty wide) contractors should be largely eliminated and a more flexible Civil Service Instituted perhaps a two-track system--one a permanent set of officials for jobs that are clearly permanent and the other a pool of people, like IT specialists that may be project-specific. Say if Labor needed a new procurement system they could just enlist the people that worked for DOD to set up their system (I've worked procurement so I see the disasters that contractors cause).
