Study shows $125 Billion in Waste at Pentagon ... Pentagon nukes study

06 December 2016 - 07:38 AM

Interesting read in today's Post. I spent all of 9 months as a defense contractor about 5 years ago, and even that was enough for me to realize how utterly focked up DoD is.

 

Salient points:

 

 

The money could cover the operational costs for 50 Army brigades, or 3,000 F-35 Joint Strike Fighters for the Air Force, or 10 aircraft-carrier strike groups for the Navy.

 

 

 

The data showed that the Defense Department was paying a staggering number of people — 1,014,000 contractors, civilians and uniformed personnel — to fill back-office jobs far from the front lines.

 

 

 

Almost half of the Pentagon’s back-office personnel — 457,000 full-time employees — were assigned to logistics or supply-chain jobs. That alone exceeded the size of United Parcel Service’s global workforce.

The Pentagon’s purchasing bureaucracy counted 207,000 full-time workers. By itself, that would rank among the top 30 private employers in the United States.

More than 192,000 people worked in property management. About 84,000 people held human-resources jobs.
