So today I went to my first contractors meeting. At this meeting we discuss current projects, future ones and then put out a few for the contractors to bid on.

When we first started doing this, the US Army was in charge of everything. We picked what projects were going to be done, where and when. Every so often we transfer more of the power over to the local Iraqi governments.

This is where we seem to run into problems. The local councils appoint an engineer to look over, alter and change the scopes of the projects. The guy who was appointed in my area runs off of a different time than anyone else. We give him a project to look over and then he sits on it for weeks, so we have a hard time putting the job up for the contractors to bid on them.

The council is talking of replacing him. Hopefully they'll pick someone a little more proactive.
