We were told we couldn’t do mixed lots due to the FAR’s in 80’s/ 90’s
That was just the default “safe” way to operate for most defense contractors back during the days of the $400 claw hardware store hammers, $800 toilet seats and $2300 coffee makers.
Our Motorola Gov. business actually won a “Silver Hammer” award from Al Gore.
The reason was related to a $10 tool we bought and modified then sold for $1k plus.

Then there was the time a contracting and security officers showed up at our offices with a brown paper bag with $13K in small bills to trade for 3 phones....  SERIOUSLY!

Dammmm I miss the good old days.

All, no doubt, legal and allowable costs.

Funniest thing I can talk about is the young man who came to Bell Helicopter one day - unannounced, trying to sell something.  He was a tall skinny kid, long shoulder length hair, tie-dyed t-shirt wearing a bandanna around his neck.  In short: a quintessential hippy-looking fellow (back during the day). 

The guards let him in once he opened the trunk of his old, beat up car.  In the trunk was a beautiful, fully functional streamlined fiberglass 50-cal machine gun pod with electronic targeting sensors he had developed.  It was ready to be put on a helicopter and demonstrated.  The “kid” had all the proper paperwork; everything was perfectly legal.... just unorthodox as hell.  A small contingent of Bell Helicopter managers and engineers were sent out to meet this “hippy”.    As far as I will say, things turned out pretty well for him.
