The time will come when government downsizing and I bet they will ask for public support...
After this long long delay, I have no sympathy for them if they ever lose their jobs...
Peter they don’t loose their jobs and cannot be sacked either they have security of tenure.
It is hereby declared the policy of the State to protect the security of tenure of civil service officers and employees in the reorganization of the various agencies of the National Government and of local governments, state colleges and universities expressly authorized by law, including government-owned or controlled corporations with original charters, without sacrificing the need to promote morale, efficiency in the civil service.

The problem is the process not the people, and I hope what has happened here, as and when it is further publicized (working on it...) will lead to changes. But I strongly urge that any interactions with DEA be left to Eisai and not individual investors. Eisai has a huge stake in what's going on and is far better equipped to deal with DEA. The history of ARNA longs trying to intervene has been a disaster so far - the volume of spam posts on the FR is at least part of the cause of the delays. Just leave it to the company. Eisai and ARNA would thank you for that.
I agree the process is the problem. It doesn't appear there is ever a sense of urgency. However, in the private sector, when you are part of a process that is broken, team members usually believe in continuous improvement of themselves and their jobs. People step up and take ownership. I don't understand why the people that are part of the process don't change it themselves? I think its rather funny how obviously broken the process is, yet it sometimes seems the government people forget who they really work for.
I really don't have much confidence in any government regulatory agency. Corruption does exist in government agencies...it's called work, fleecing their share of our tax dollars so they can have a job, with no regard to the bottom line of the company's they regulate. The DEA would fail as a private company required to deliver a product, or performance of a service. Little room for any excuse for their marginal performance process to conduct a review, and that's my view.
I have to admit I think the threads of people asking others to petition, write, or call one inefficient gov't agency to get them to do something about another inefficient gov't agency very amusing. SEC, DEA, Congress, Senate. lol. who you going to call? Ghost Busters.
I gave you a thumbs up, and I am one of those "government workers". I think I can safely say that we are all upset at the process. The DEA has been less than tranparent about where we are in the process, and good, hardworking people have invested their money in ARNA and need to see a return. I totally get that, and as a matter of fact I am in that camp.
Rather than beat mercilessly upon the DEA with no solutions in mind, we need to see what we can do about the process. A thought I had was trying to work with our representatives in Congress on making the DEA (or any other government organization for that matter) give some sort of quarterly update much like a CC. Something like that where the head of the organization would have to give guidance, and then field questions about their expected/future performance. I realize this is a huge pie-in-the-sky hope but it sure would solve a lot of problems.

that was a quite diplomatic reply. Easy say than done. Somehow, I don't see the will that they are going to change anything at this stage. That's why there is a word for it: bureaucracy. And don't forget that people have short memories. When this thing is finally over, who cares what happens to the next Belviq...
Good will might not always bring in good results...
Eisai is in contact with the dea since they are the sponser, this is what they have said...You would think updates would be given to the sponser when requested and some sort of timeline to finish the process..Eisai is losing a ton of money and patent time in this process..70 questions and where are you now? One can feel the frustration that must be going on with Eisai, they should surely be in constant contact with the dea...Its up to them not us or arna since they are the sponser
wel,l we were promised transparency. this is what it looks like. representatives are clueless or part of the problem. the clueless ones become the problem by the end of their first year. term limits and/or tar and feathers.
