1. I think part of the contracts needs to be an enforcement clause

that states that costs cannot run more than 10% over original bid, and if they do, that company never again gets a government contract, that the company forfeits the entire cost of the contract, that the company owes the entire amount paid to date back to the government, cannot go 'bankrupt' to avoid paying, and that any salaries and bonuses paid to executives above 100k a year must be repaid by those executives.

Ie, you either deliver what you promise, or you go out of business and go broke personally. No more simply lying about costs to the government to get contracts.
