Contractor Catfight

I not going to waste a lot of time on this. I just found it amusing. Highly amusing. Charlie was head of JPDO for the FAA prior to moving to Raytheon.

Raytheon Executive Fined Over Affair Letter in $1 Billion Contract Lawsuit

”A Raytheon Co. executive was fined by a Washington court for failing to give opponents in a lawsuit a reprimand letter stemming from an affair with a subordinate while both worked at the Federal Aviation Administration.”

I didn’t follow this the first time through the article. There was an office romance at the FAA. Charlie/FAA got a reprimand for it. It’s germane to a lawsuit Charlie/Raytheon are in now and Charlie/Raytheon didn’t produce the reprimand. The court fined him for that. Moving on.

”For the past two years, Washington Consulting Group, or WCG, has argued that the relationship began at the FAA, and continued after Keegan left for Raytheon and Maureen Knopes, now Keegan’s wife, became responsible for a contracting program to train air traffic controllers. WCG had held the contract for more than 20 years until Raytheon won it in 2008.”


Yes, I have written about this before.
