The process of developing a contract for small construction or services is counter productive to obtaining efficient services and needed work for our agencies. Every service should have canned templates how they want them to be constructed so all each sub-unit has to do is fill in the blanks. This is woefully slow, cumbersome, and filled with people who spend more time telling you what is wrong instead of what is needed to get this process done quickly. Budgets are never passed timely, funds never arrive until it is almost too late to obligate them and is wasting time, money, and keeping too many people employed in the wrong areas of government. Simplify!
