AMS might be getting over their recent Mississippi settlement, however, I feel they still have a lot of problems in the near and far term.

The biggest problem is AMS wants to be in the big leagues with the Andersen's, Booze Allen's, etc. This is a good strategy, but their corporate culture does not provide for this. They really lack the rigid organization to grow beyond their current capacity.

The other thing to look at, as an investor, is problems that may or may not continue with the Thrift Savings Project. Already, a Thrift Saving's Plan Project manager sent out a letter to all saving plan members openly discussing their dissatisfaction with AMS.

Can AMS get over continued project project problems & litigations? Can AMS continue to grow to an Andersen level?

Just to make things interesting... can the general tech turnover/attrition in the marketplace allow AMS to grow?

My two cents!
