Who forgot to put the cover on the Death Star exhaust port?

Recently departed space pioneer John Glenn has many famous quotes.

The best perhaps was "I felt exactly how you would feel if you were getting ready to launch and knew you were sitting on top of two million parts - all built by the lowest bidder on a government contract."

The orbits had to be cut short after a malfunction.

It made me wonder who tended for the Death Star? A higher bidder would probably have forked out a few more galactic credits for an exhaust port cover.

Below is a diagram of the Mercury craft. You see more on that mission here.

This is also fun:
