Red River Computer Co., which resells Cisco, Apple and Dell computers to the government, is a company with only 68 employees, yet it paid its top executives more than $5 million in 2011, including $1.2 million to its CEO, Richard Bolduc.
"The compensation limits being discussed relate only to cost reimbursement contracts," he said, not the contracts with which his company deals, which are "firm-fixed-priced revenues which are subject to the government's price reasonableness analyses."
He said the proposed reforms mean little to his company because it pays its executives out of corporate profits and does not bill the government directly at all for executive salaries.
