0806 - Summary/Objective
080701 - Follow up ref SDS 20 0000, ref SDS 19 0000.
080703 - Max said he has not yet discussed with Tom the Welch contract scope
080704 - that Tom submitted last week, ref SDS 19 line 71. Max has some
080705 - additional ideas for this effort to support a new group to formulate a
080706 - government negotiating position on "something." I am unsure if this
080707 - is the Port of Oakland project claims matter that Tom mentioned when
080708 - we met a few weeks ago, per ref SDS 16 line 76. In any case, Max said
080709 - Tom is very good at organizing ad hoc initiatives, as well as projects
080710 - generally.
080712 - He discussed claim and other DMMO support in our meeting on 960214,
080713 - ref SDS 4 line 149.
080715 - ..
080716 - Max put an explanation of this new assignment on Tom's desk yesterday
080717 - afternoon, indicating the team members who will work with Tom. This
080718 - morning Tom called in to request two days leave. Max is unsure if
080719 - these events are related.
080721 - ..
080722 - He asked me to call Tom Monday morning and explain my visit with Max,
080723 - that Max has ideas for me to support Tom's new assignment, and that
080724 - Max wants to meet with us Tuesday or Wednesday about the Welch scope.
080726 - [Did this at ref SDS 21 line 77 and discussed with Tom at ref SDS
080727 - 22 line 102.]
080729 - ..
080730 - Max mentioned that the DMMO matter seems less of a priority for Welch
080731 - support now because activity has receeded. He noted that a staff
080732 - member has recently undergone open-heart surgery. There is concern
080733 - about how well he will be able to contribute after his return to work.
080735 - ..
080736 - Max said recent changes in the Corps management structure have
080737 - resulted in greater autonomy or at least responsibility for the
080738 - District Offices. In particular he mentioned the District is focusing
080739 - more attention to quality management, that was formerly considered at
080740 - the Division level.
080742 - ..
080743 - Max mentioned the question about whether an outside contractor can
080744 - assist the government in developing a negotiating position on contract
080745 - claims. We discussed briefly the partnering procedure Hank Hatch
080746 - mentioned he insitituted at COE to hire outside contractors to help
080747 - with a backlog of claims that accumulated, ref SDS 6 line 213,
080748 - discussed with Tom at ref SDS 7 line 59 and with Max at ref SDS 12
080749 - line 153.
080751 - [See follow up at ref SDS 22 line 108, ref SDS 23 line 166 and ref
080752 - SDS 24 line 138.]
