Serve Yogurt - And Win NASA Contracts!

NASA GSFC Solicitation: Military and Aerospace FPGA Applications Conference

Editor's note: I just love these "extra consideration Items" - especially: "Government rate for hotel rooms for 2 nights prior to the conference and 2 nights later at a reduced room block level" .... "yogurt during the continental breakfast". I can understand the extra night aspect - this way dozens of NASA civil servants and other attendees can show up early and/or stay late and get a mini-vacation in November in Palm Beach out of this (the Amendment 01 states "We require the availability of government room rate for approximately 25-30 guests two days before and after the conference.").

What has me baffled, however, is why having yogurt at breakfast is considered an "extra consideration" in this formal government procurment activity.
