Too many contractors take advantage of the federal budget. They charge extra hours, spend many hours reinventing the wheel so they can charge more hours, and create many extra expenses so they can gain more profit for their company. Contracted projects should be reviewed to determine if current government staff can complete the tasks (they are, after all hired because they have skills and abilities), if the budgets, staffing and hourly wages are reasonable, and for possible fraud and waste. There are a lot of contractors getting rich as the gov't deficit gets larger and larger because of it.
