Is this a duplicate post? Methinks this is a case where the Navy was over-eager to use the software and Bitmanagement wanted a sweeter $$ deal than was originally proposed, after they found out how many were in use. I've seen this process in the past; it's easier to count the number of licenses in use than to estimate how many you might need, especially since most purchasing agents tend to over-estimate and the contract usually binds you to a set number. I doubt very much that the Navy intended to steal anything and I'd like to see the value of the original contract.

(Join to see) That is what it sounds like to me. The vendor changed their bid and the Navy REALLY wanted the software. What I find is odd, is the Navy was using the a large number of licenses before an approved contract was in place. When I was on active duty, we were not allowed to use ANY software on government machines until it was approved by NMCI and had the proper licenses for it.

I'm sure there's more to this than meets the eye! Although I am glad I'm out and don't have to deal with this, whatever the outcome may be.
