Save Billions: Contractor/Outsourcing in the federal government seems to be a method where contractors get rich and do not for the most part accomplish what they are hired to do at a minimum. In addition most contracts are raised significantly year after year after the original contracted period. This work has been proven to be more efficient and cost effective if done by government employees. The main difference seems to be that contractors are paid out of a different fund therefore the cost of doing business is not cheaper it only looks cheaper in the fund that is no longer paying for that service. If the Fed employees cost were moved to the contractors fund and compared dollar for dollar the government could easily see it is cheaper to do business inside the government.
