I have heard similar stories, not only from within the US.  But, is
this the way a government *has* to work?

Maybe not done by a private business but within.  Departments within
larger private businesses sometimes have the same problem.  The issue
is not the fact that it is a government organization it is its size.
The farther away and the less directly connnected a person is who
decides over a budget the worse it gets.  But, is there no way to
provide incentives to a person within a government organization to
make sensible decisions?
