Pentagon IG Report Finds Problems with Air Force Contract
The Pentagon's Inspector General found problems in an Air Force acquisition problem that sound all too familiar.
According to the IG's recent report on the Second Generation Wireless Local Area Network, the program's management office failed to properly plan, manage and figure out the program's final cost.
The report goes on to say that the second generation contracting officer "did not implement internal controls."
And there's more.
The report says, "She potentially limited competition, accepted supplies and services valued at $38.1 million that were not inspected for quality or quantity by a Government representative, approved nearly $798,300 in potential overcharges for contractor travel costs, and did not ensure the task order was fully funded at award."
The project management office "incorrectly funded $4.3 million of the task order with procurement funds rather than research, development, test and evaluation funds and funded $143.3 million in modifications with incorrect" funds.
It sounds like lots of mistakes were made on this one. Too bad.
