DOE IG report

From Anonymous:

Doug, I thought you might find this new DOE IG report on contractor post retirement benefits of interest. If the IG had his way, DOE would just federalize the contractor workforce and give everyone the same benefits DOE employees get.

In a little over a year, these same people from DOE will be micro-managing
the new LANL Corp pension for current staff and the health benefits for both
the staff and current retires. Expect this same sort of treatment once we
have been captured by the new contract. Whatever DOE promises you today
about your future pension and benefits can be voided by the DOE with only
60 days notice after June 1, 2006.

DOE is asking the staff at LANL to "trust us", but can we really afford
to do that?
To quote Foley at the all-hands, "The short answer is NO!
DOE IG is the most politicized and self-serving IG in the Federal Government. It is part of the antinuclear cabal that is marbled throughout the Department. It is the only IG with no procedure for issuing a finding of exemplary or best-of-class performance. It can only have negative, condemnatory findings. The joke in Washington is that DOE/IG inspectors are never invited to weddings because the proceedings would never get past the question, "DOEs anyone know of any reason why this marriage should not take place?" If the DOE/IG inspector knew nothing negative they would make something up on the spot. What a bureaucracy!
Anonymous at 5/27/2005 07:04:05 AM has is correct! The DOE auditors are the most incompetent, unprofessional, and dishonest in the business. A proper audit is a comparison against a standard, specification, contractual requirement, etc. What these jerks do is just come up with a bunch of negative statements such as "LANL did not do ...." whereas in fact there was no requirement to do that.
