“The Performance Institute and the Assault on San Diego,” Chapter 2 of “Target San Diego” by Lee Cokorinos answers some questions asked by Patricia Vainik. Read it here.
My favorite section:
“the Performance Institute was put on a special schedule of vendors that compete for Federal contracts against one another rather than on the open market. DeMaio’s company hit pay dirt in 2002, landing a $2.5 million contract with the General Services Administration for management, organizational and business improvement service. It has since grown into an $8.5 million company with 35 employees in Arlington and 15 in San Diego. From $30,000 to $8.5 million in five years.”
