    Many like me have had very bad experiences with Parr Inspections. Parr Inspections mobilizes too many inspectors and leave most of them with too little work to even cover their lodging and travel expenses. I got curious about who is behind “PARR Inspections”. 

    This is what I found:

    -  Two companies own “PARR Inspections”:  Dewberry & Davis LLC http://www.dewberry.com/ ( tel.# 703-849-0247 http://www.urscorp.com/

    -  The Associate Vice President of Dewberry, Mr. Jason McNamara, is now Chief of Staff at FEMA. http://www.fema.gov/about/bios/mcnamara.shtm

    -  PARR Inspections is listed by the Small Business Administration (SBA) as being a small company http://dsbs.sba.gov/dsbs/search/dsp_profile.cfm?duns=123120060 despite the fact that PARR Inspections received a $750 million contract from FEMA in 2007!!!

    From 2001 to April 2007, PARR Inspections did 2.5 million inspections. I don’t know how much PARR received from FEMA for that, but the current contract is for $750 million for a 4.5 year period spanning from April 2007.

    PARR Inspections pays only $57.50 per inspection. But how much does it receive from FEMA (= taxpayers)? 

     

    Here is my assessment: if PARR did 2.5 million inspections from 2001 to April 2007, roughly six years (this period includes hurricane Katrina), Parr Inspections certainly will make fewer inspections over a 4.5 year period spanning from April 2007. By assuming the same average rate of inspections, over a period of 4.5 year, PARR will do 1.9 million inspections.  (4.5 years/6 years * 2.5 million inspections=1.9 million inspections)

     

    For 1.9 million inspections, PARR receives $750 million from FEMA. This is equal to $395 per inspection!! And the inspector gets $57.50 or less than 15%!

     

    To me, it is appalling, that this “PARR Inspections” with its executive, now chief of staff at FEMA, keeps 85% of what the taxpayers pay them and leaves peanuts to the people that do the inspections.

     

    All of you should raise hell about this on-going throat squeezing of people who try to earn an honest buck. Contact media, politicians and Dewberry & Davis LLC about this injustice.

    Mr. Baker
    With all do respect, you are crying(speaking) about the very thing that you and your attorney cohorts get away with every day, you put up the fancy commercials looking for folks who got a splinter in their hind ends when they were slacking off on a job they didn't deserve to get in the first place, then when these folks sign up for "representation" (a term I use loosely) you attorney's then work some poor sap paralegal (who makes what 10 bucks an hour) 12 hours a day on these cases(again a term used loosely).

    So let's say you extort 100K from an employer  and you take a third(33k) Let me guess how much of that 33k goes to the poor sap who did all the leg work, yep you got it zero !!!

    So when you stop making the big bucks of the backs of some poor sap paralegal, maybe just maybe you will have a leg to stand on when trying to stop someone else from doing the same thing.

    Don't for one second try to make anyone think you care about someone making peanuts by being subcontracted by a subcontractor!! You don't and it's all about the dollar signs. This is not to say that PARR is a blooming rose because they are not.
