The panel has been meeting for more than a year to establish fairer and more intelligent policies for determining who should do what federal work. Critics of the decision, including Panel member Bobby L. Harnage Sr., president of the American Federation of Government Employees, which represents 650,000 federal workers, said the report was unfair. They argued that ?best value? is highly subjective and ill defined, and that the report completely ignored accountability.
