Math, LANL style

The NNSA report last week indicated that 25 million more was needed to complete the TA 55 security fence failure. In a typical LANL cost estimation expect to see this number double.

Hey, what's a factor of two (or more) between friends? It is near impossible to understand how screw ups like this can happen over and over again with no repercussions from the government.

From the OIG policy on waste, fraud and abuse.
Probably does not apply here, but you never know.


'Waste – involves the taxpayers not receiving reasonable value for money in connection with any government funded activities due to an inappropriate act or omission by players with control over or access to government resources (e.g., executive, judicial or legislative branch employees, grantees or other recipients).  Importantly, waste goes beyond fraud and abuse and most waste does not involve a violation of law.  Rather, waste relates primarily to mismanagement, inappropriate actions and inadequate oversight.'
