Whatz My Job Agin?

Procurement notice: LEASE OF OFF SITE OFFICE SPACE FOR MSFC OFFICE OF THE CHEIF INFORMAITON OFFICER ENTERPRISE APPLICATION COMPETENCY CENTER

Editor's 11:34 am EDT note: Hmm, what does it say when MSFC's Chief Information Officer cannot even spell their own title properly?

Editor's 4:44 pm EDT note: I guess someone reads NASA Watch - a modification has been posted:

"This is a modification to the synopsis which was posted on June 27, 2008. You are notified that the following changes are made: This amendment hereby corrects the title of the synopsis to read, "LEASE OF OFF-SITE OFFICE SPACE FOR MSFC OFFICE OF THE CHIEF INFORMATION OFFICER ENTERPRISE APPLICATION COMPETENCY CENTER"."

Gee, I wonder what this cost in terms of staff time - i.e. to tell someone that there was a spelling error, assign the task of fixing it, actually fixing it, then uploading it. This is especially relevant when you consider that most software comes equipped with spell checkers these days - something the MSFC CIO's office should know something about - right?
