U.S. Department of Defense Contract Awards for July 02, 2012Submitted by go213mph on Tue, 07/03/2012 - 07:59
I just LOVE how this particular money is being spent. Nothing like 28.5 million for "tracking and evaluation of emerging microelectronics". Also "assist in devoloping testing techniques" and "Monitor industry progress" The Mayo Clinic may do something with the 28.5 million dollars but all they really have to do is write a paper and explain how they tracked and monitored. That money is going into about 10 peoples (well connected) bank accounts. Maybe 1 million will be left in the hosiptal bank account 2 weeks after they get the money.
The Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn., is being awarded a $28,435,591 indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract to provide tracking and evaluation of emerging microelectronics technologies; to assist in developing testing techniques, applications and prototypes, and modeling and simulation; and to monitor industry progress on related efforts for federal departments and agencies
And does it cost 51 million dollars to build an elementary school?
Gilbane Building Co., Lakewood Ranch, Fla., was awarded a $50,968,494 firm-fixed-price contract. The award will provide for the construction of the New Antilles Elementary School at Fort Buchanan, Guaynabo, Puerto Rico.
