Re: Calling the workforce "unqualified" shows a complete lack of the present working environement
Yes, I agree, many IT folks who work for the government are highly qualified but hamstrung by very complicated budget structures (or lack of it) and being spread extremely thin. It certainly doesn't help that the NSA's reaction to the Edward Snowden affair was to reduce IT staff by 90% to reduce the chance of additional data leaks.
