If you’re going to take funding from the Govnerment you have to follow their guidelines. If you’re not going to follow their guidelines, don’t take their funding. You can’t take their funding and then throw a fit when they expect you to follow certain standards. If I’m investing in a business and giving you funds to develop the business per your business plan as shown to me, I expect that you’re going to follow the business plan.
