Guys, if you want changes at Government Liquidation, elminating advertising on this website will not make it happen, the MVPA will not make it happen if they refuse ads.
Excellent post Sir...and I mean that. Also cudos on your other thread/comments on the scrap issue to DLA.Two things possibly can- one is enough, large level national attention to the negatives that they get motivated to change.
The otheris by going above their heads. That means when we have problems, report the to DLA Disposition Services (Formeley DRMS/DRMO) every time. DLA has a small business ombudsman whose job it is to take our issues, adddress them, and find a solution. Use that office.
We should also start compiling a long list of people with issues and details of those issues and send that so some Congressman or investigative reporter who wants to make a name for himself by attacking waste in a government contractor.
If we started compling a long thread of examples of damage to equipment from DRMO/ Government Liquidation neglect and abuse, we could send an investigative reporter a long list of hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars in damged government property. The media or a Congressman won't do that legwork, but if you hand them an extensive report on a silver platter, they just may run with it. If every one of us took photos of equipment damaged or neglected in GL or DRMO hands when we saw it, and posted that in a long thread with locations and dates, that would give someone a powerful tool to start asking questions.
Jay, You did know that GL auctions close on Thursday, right?Id be mad at any bussiness that put stupid ads on 4 days of every month. **** the ads are bigger than the Holidays like Christmas, Verterans Day and Memorial day. Like I said I really like that they sent it out , I wasnt expecting it , but could be better if they didnt ad it up. The bottom ads are fine but I didnt need auction close dates in my face like that.
We get it, advertisements are annoying!
