It is utterly amazing to me that high value contract work such as computer systems is let without an ironclad contract, including a performance and/or completion bond. Such a contract should also include penalties for not meeting incremental milestones/dates as well as a final completion date.
From the article it appears that there is absolutely no control over this tax issue. Someone had to authorize and sign some sort of contract.
Let us readers see this “contract” and who authorized it. I for one want to see a name.
And, pray tell, who is going to pay, and how much, for the “credit lines” in the meantime?
