I'll Take The Contract For Raisins, Please
I'm looking for a government contract online, more specifically a statement of work to which my company will respond. No, this is not fun...until you actually start looking at the jobs the government is putting out there. Here are a few contracts that companies are invited to bid upon:
- Appraisal Methods for Canola/Rapeseed, Crambe, and Mustard Crops;
- Wheat Tillering;
- Research Pan Temperature measurement System for Household Electric Ceramic Glass Cooking Ranges Control System To Prevent Ignition of Cooking Materials;
- Provide Bottle water and dispenser; and my favorite
Sometimes you just have to scratch your head and say "huh."

Raisins? What about raisins? That's a bit vague isn't it? I have a whole multi-pack of raisins in my cupboard - I wonder if I could put in a bid.
Hee hee, I used to do that too!! It's so scary/funny that our government 1) Is actually that involved in the Raisin and Wheat "Tillering" industries; and 2) Needs to receive honest-to-god bids and proposals in order to buy Three (3) Units of Name-Brand Carpet Cleaner or something.
Wow, just when you thought the govt couldn't get much stupider.... they prove you wrong!
Raisins remind me of little flies with their wings chopped off.
Now, I'm going to drink some more coffee and wake up. : )
What is it you do exactly? I thought you were in IT...
Do the raisins need to wear gloves and dance?
Hehehe, I like that list. It makes absolutely no sense at all! Is it a government farm?
You made Tom yell at me for laughing so loud when I read "raisins." Consider this a warning!
Tillering. I like that word.
Got to go now, I'm off to do a spot of tillering.
That raisins bit is just plain disturbing.
I'm willing to bet there is a listing for Dung Management, somewhere...
Hey! Somebody has to do it...
and Theresa, little flies? wow. what size are your local flies? cause the ones we have here are about raisin size I'm thinking...
