I'm inclined to agree with you. I think it is. The issue then becomes trying to get DND to be consistent with Treasury Board guidelines and consistent with every other entity's costing process. It seems that even with moving to the acquisition cost, they still don't want to come forward with consistent methodology so that Canadians can compare apples to apples, as opposed to apples to oranges to lemons.
