0706 - ..
0707 - Summary/Objective
070801 - I requested this meeting to present additional considerations with
070802 - respect to developing support for pending DNRC actions requested by
070803 - the Director at the meeting earlier today, ref SDS 4.
0711 - Discussion
071201 - I indicated that Sarah and Walt have worked very hard on the
071202 - Broadwater matter, including a lot of overtime. They have had to
071203 - shoulder, for the Department, a very difficult contract management
071204 - situation caused by Tudor and Voith. However, there will be even more
071205 - work to do in the weeks ahead.
071207 - While I have been a little disappointed that some of the background is
071208 - not fully assembled (which is normal), generally I find support for
071209 - the Department's positions, certainly more so than for Tudor and
071210 - Voith.
071212 - I suggested that in addition to the reasons given at the meeting
071213 - earlier today, ref SDS 4 line 081107, this trip may be a good way to
071214 - recognize the extra efforts that have been made by key staff, and to
071215 - encourage getting some specific tasks done to support DNRC's pending
071216 - actions, as follows:
071218 - 1. Legal opinion on firing Tudor
071219 - 2. Option paper on Voith
071220 - 3. CPM showing Broadwater closeout tasks (and assignments).
071221 - 4. Engineering analysis of Tudor failures
071222 - 5. Procurement report on authority for hiring replacement
071225 - I indicated this is a lot of work, and the prospect of going full bore
071226 - to get it done with a few days in SF to implement a critical step in
071227 - the closeout plan, may turn out to be a good investment in personal
071228 - and organizational morale.
071230 - Karen will consider this idea in connection with the results of the
071231 - meeting on Monday.
0715 - Follow Up
071601 - Prepared proposed talking points for 911125 1130 meeting on agenda
071602 - for SF trip.
071604 - Prepared scope for pending tasks to accomplish for SF trip.

1210 - Discussion
121101 - I mentioned the article pending to be published in PMI magazine on
121102 - POIMS technology, and asked Karen if she would be willing to give me
121103 - her observations. Her management style appears to be consistent with
121104 - some of the arguments advanced in the article and so her perspective
121105 - on the writing would be helpful.
121107 - She agreed to comment, so I went and got a copy for her.
