A recent survey found that more than 50 percent of federal managers believe that multiple programs should be cut by a super committee in order to save money and minimize government contractors. An overwhelming 84 percent of survey respondents maintained that decreasing the contractor workforce would save expenses, while more than half opined that reducing the number of contractors would help in eliminating waste.
The survey report stated that “paying more into their pensions, reducing the salary used to calculate annuities, further freezing pay and raising health care premiums are unacceptable to the majority of managers.”
