Air Force Contract Under Investigation
Agents from the FBI and the Pentagon's Defense Criminal Investigative Service are looking into a contract between the Air Force and Commonwealth Research Institute, according to documents and interviews.
Commonwealth Research Institute, or CRI, is a Pennsylvania non-profit hired for consulting and other work without competition through a five-year contract worth $45 million.
The Post's Robert O'Harrow reported last year that the Air Force arranged for CRI to pay $26,788 to Charles D. Riechers, a civilian awaiting White House confirmation for a Defense Department appointment. CRI's parent, Concurrent Technologies, has received $226 million in congressional earmarks in recent years.
