    Food for thought....

    Anybody who's ever dealt with government
    contracts can tell you they are not something to bet the
    farm on. They can delay and delay, and then scrap the
    whole procurement if they get nervous about it. The BOP
    can just live with overcrowding, ship people around,
    etc. Bureaucrats fear looking foolish as much as
    anything else, and when a decision may be embarrassing,
    then no decision at all may be their safest course.
    Will PZN get the big BOP contract? Will political
    pressure from California stall the award if they plan to
    house them there? Will the BOP decide that PZN's
    capital resources are insufficient to assure performance?
    What PZN needs is "growrh" Haven't seen much of that
    lately, just spec prisons and talk about RFPs.
