It’ll cost what it’ll cost!

Quote of the Day:

The US Postal Service’s planned new program for combining all their barcode systems for efficient delivery is nearly a year late and may not have enough money to actually finish the project. When the GAO recommended they 

Define the core set of requirements for the entire program and use them as a basis for developing a reliable cost estimate.

the USPS responded

“Any attempt to define the ‘entire program’ and the cost associated is a waste of funding and resources.”

I wish I was allowed to say that when estimating a project.
