Performance Appraisals

Elsewhere,
A top Army contracting official who criticized a large, noncompetitive contract with the Halliburton Company for work in Iraq was demoted Saturday for what the Army called poor job performance.
Haliburton is the company where the current veep of the country previously worked. The contract is for $5 billion over 5 years. The company also has other contracts going, all for big amounts, that she has been criticising also.

She has been working there for 20 years. Her performance was apparently very good till she started speaking up:
Ms. Greenhouse initially received stellar performance ratings, Mr. Kohn said. But her reviews became negative at roughly the time she began objecting to decisions she saw as improperly favoring Kellogg Brown & Root, he said.
More grist for the mills of those who distrust performance appraisals.
