Incumbents Win

Well we won the recompete on our project. That means our project is safe for a few more years. It is standard fare. There is one base year plus two option years. The option years will most likely be exercised unless we totally fail.

This is a maintenance contract. We are to keep the lights on in the system. That means fixing crucial bugs, and adding the minimal new set of features to keep the system going. However I find we are doing a little more than just maintenance.

There is another team working on the replacement system for ours. They are using a host of new technologies. We on the maintenance side are spending a lot of time integrating one of the new technologies into the old system. I guess we are putting our best foot forward. Who knows? We might get into work on the new replacement system.
