Well, it's not 60 Minutes

What was that old joke...."you know it's going to be a bad day when 60 Minutes shows up in your office"? Or the Bujoldian equivalent, a message on your comconsole that the Imperial Auditor is here?

My morning surprise wasn't quite that bad--it was an email announcing a visit to my office from a GAO (Government Accountability Office) team next week, to discuss water use. My area of expertise, in other words. And really it's even less bad, as this is the next stage in an analysis they are doing on power generation and water use (gov't study thereof, this being GAO), and I've already had some input into an earlier stage in my role on the national water-use team.

Nonetheless. The Imperial Auditors are coming. (At least these announce themselves in advance, and even say why they're coming <g>). I get to prepare the first draft of the responses to their list of 9 advance questions, and will be in the meeting with them next week. This stuff just takes a little more care and political savvy than my job normally requires....see me tip-toe, so to speak, as I type.
