    SAIC is a highly evolved obligate parasite of government.

    As with many highly evolved parasites, many capabilities are either vestigial or entirely absent; but the apparatus used to find, latch on to, and suck nutrients from, the host has been optimized to an impressive degree.

    Is that given their federal track record, why would NYC give them something like this? Their prior performance at the federal level looks like the killing fields of Cambodia done on a bank statement. They're an institutional argument of why cost alone should never be a factor in awarding a contract; bang-for-the-buck instead because the feds have almost without fail gotten exactly what they've paid for from this company.
