USAF Clerk “Loses” December Contracts:

A new Air Force employee failed to notify DOD about the service’s contract awards for the month of December. (If only we could have a do-over day, now and then.) DOD posts high-value contract announcements on its Web site each day, as a public notification tool. On Monday, the DOD contracts carried the entire list of USAF’s December contracts—numbering 57 and amounting to about $4 billion. Some of the winning contractors, of course, already had made public announcements at the time they received the contracts. (The list is included in this Pentagon news release.)
