As a former resident of Washington, D.C. and as a practictioner of the architectural profession, I found the following article:
On the Hill, a Heap of Trouble, by Philip Kennicott, about the appointment of a new Architect of the Capitol. The former AOC, apparently did not do a very good job staying on budget and on schedule for a major architectural project going on at the Capitol. They're thinking a manager of some sort would be better.
The best quote from the article is: "The job is a classic federal conundrum, relatively low pay for a workload that would draw top dollar in the private sector. On the agenda for the next architect is finishing and opening the new visitor center, and suffering regular and theatrical abuse from Congress until the oohs and ahs of happy constituents, who will no longer have to wait in the blazing sun for tours, start coming in."
Low pay, high expectations, lots of drama?
They won't be able to get anyone but an architect to take such a horrific job. They're trained for it!
