    Following 2 CEOs, 3? Major Reviews and 15 yrs of the DMO experiment is the Abbott government going to Bite the Bullet and make its Managers and Staff face consequences for non performance? After all, the recent acquisition successes Abrams, C17A ER, M777, MH60R, Growler and Super Hornet have all been FMS delivered via our most favoured nation status on USA service contract terms with minimal DMO involvement other than exercising options like Aux Gen and Inf Tank Tel in the Abrams. Maybe 2 to 3 yr career stamps on uniformed personnel promotion plans will be substituted by subject matter experts whose reputation was based on delivery of cost effective outcomes to contracted specifications, on time and within budget. Pigs might fly down in malfunction junction also!
