Efficiencies, efficiencies — everywhere, the military is looking for efficiencies.
Well, Time Magazine’s Battleland blog has one idea of how to save almost $25 million: The Air Force could actually write up its own report on how it does its own work.
Booz Allen Hamilton will receive $24,966,507 to write a series of studies including the vageuely titled “Tactics, Techniques and Procedures Report.” (TTPs on what, folks?)
As Battleland’s Mark Thompson points out, “‘Tactics, Techniques and Procedures” is a oft-used military phrase that simply means how we do things around here; the fact that it’s plucked as the title for a multi-million-dollar report seems strange.”
He later adds: “Not sure what’s more appalling: the lousy grammar, or the fact that the U.S. Air Force apparently lacks the ability to do this kind of work on its own.”
