Trust me: that is most definitely not the case here. A contract DBA is lucky to make that amount per day, if ever.

Developers? The last ones we contracted came in at 2grand/day. And did more damage than a lifetime of DBAs...

The whole equation for ROI really needs to be re-examined: the "expensive DBA" has been a chestnut for years now, about time some folks opened their eyes to the real costs in *any* project!
