Pay for performance . . .
. . . is the U. S. Gummint's new mantra. March 2nd, the Department of Defense instituted a new system to set objectives, measure performance and tie raises/bonuses to that performance. Apparently, it's Rumsfeld's legacy - and true to the governmental fettish for complicates systems, the performance evaluation form is fifteen pages long. Yep, fifteen pages. Estimates of the cost of implementation are somewhat north of $200,000,000. Whatever . . .
