New Military Support Contract ‘Improperly Awarded’

by David Phinney

Nov. 1, 2007 — A new 10-year, $150 billion arrangement for providing logistical support U.S. troops around the world should be reconsidered, according to a lead government agency charged with reviewing federal contract awards. The contracts assigned the work to KBR, Fluor and DynCorp, but the General Accountability Office is challenging the deals with KBR and Fluor, according to USA Today.

The GAO claims that the Army didn’t give weighty enough consideration to Pentagon auditors’ concerns about the past performance of KBR and found that Fluor received “unequal treatment” in the contract competition:

The Army approved Fluor’s proposal even though the proposal relied on different assumptions than those listed in the contract solicitation — a shortcoming that hurt other bidders’ proposals, the GAO said.
