cellurl's Journal: Sour Grapes on the Gravy Train

Journal by cellurl
I recently bid on my first federal contract, to fix an $1800 circuit board. It was a one time only bid, no follow on work, just for experience. The board could be fixed or deemed too expensive to fix. First, I had to meet with 3 Dcma men who drove 1000 miles for our first meeting. They asked me when my oscilloscope was last calibrated. They asked what certifications I had. I said I have repaired scopes for Tektronix, have an MSEE, formed two startup companies, build and sold products at gpscruise, and have six patents. They denied me, said I couldn't do it. I then spoke with 5 other people including an ACO, and two PRA's whatever they are. Anyone have any experience with this? Do I first need to know the names of my congressmans' kids?
