I'm going to the junkyard Thursday. I'll start counting for you
Whoa Tracy! I can see you’ve not dealt with government contracting before. You need to throttle waaaaaay back. I have to build in some red tape or they won’t think the contract is worth issuing. First I’ll have to promote you to Chief Analyst, probably GS11 or so…$58k to start maybe…You’ll need the tools to do your job:

New laptop with hi-speed wireless.
Company phone.
Company car. Sorry, no Bonnevilles. Since you’ll be going to remote locations you’ll need something with a large fuel capacity and the ability to get you into and out of those places. Something like an Escalade, I’m thinking. Red, of course.

Then there’* the training and certifications that will have to be given. Ethics, safety, Six Sigma, counting techniques, color definition, climatology, sexual harassment (how to do it properly), workplace violence, Taguchi principles, etc., etc. I believe some of this training is only available on Oahu or Lanai, in San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, and Orlando.

After contract award, we’re at least 3 years out from counting our first car.

Okay, I am already certified in Ethics and safety. I believe I can successfully pull off sexual harrassment. Does threatening to stab my boss with a pen and throwing one at his qualify for workplace violence? The rest I will have to train for.

Funny. It dosn't take all that government manpower, equipment and funds for them to tell me I owe them money every year, paycheck, ect.

Are you kidding? The IRS is one of, if not the largest government organizations we have. They probably have 6 agents assigned to every taxpayer - no way they're going to let a single one of your pennies slip through a crack.

I'm feeling a disturbance in the Force right now, as a matter of fact. *checks wallet* Yep, they've just been here...
