And all this without a competition...
Amen! A competition means that you're sure you've got the best answer to the question you've asked (and actually having to formulate the question is a good start), and it also makes sure you've got the best price.

I'm hearing good things about P-8, especially spiral II onwards. But to go for it without a spec and a competition would "be very courageous, Minister". All of this CADMID / DLOD stuff does actually matter, people.
