But there's not much they can do, because they don't have the power to change stuff.
Don't get me started, but when HST came in, I took a pay cut. Why? Because my clients will not buy anything for $26,000. They will buy up to $25,000 and above $100,000.
Above $26,000, we have NAFTA. We have to do all this paperwork. It will take two years. The first thing we have to do is get an expert in to help us write the RFP, and that's going to cost us $23,000. It always does, because he has this magic $25,000 thing.
So I got a client a little while ago. I said: “You've got a problem, I've got the solution, it's $40,000, and you can't buy it. You cannot buy it.” I've had a DISO for 10 years. I've only once got it through, and it took me three years. I don't even try to sell stuff for $40,000. I just say, “You can only spend $25,000, this is all I'm going to sell you, and don't waste your time”.
Now OSME is great, and I go, “Maybe you can do it on a service contract”. I meet a typical client who has a problem. They explain the problem to me. I have the solution and I say, “Here's the solution”. That takes 10% of the time. They have a problem, I have a solution, we're going to do it. Now, 90% of the time, it's how the heck do we get this through PWGSC? Because it ain't going to fly. Let me just give you one example in the brief time I have.
