Senator Carl Levin (D-MI) has asked the General Accounting Office to conduct an audit on contracts awarded for reconstruction in Iraq.
"I am concerned that contracts worth hundreds of millions, and even billions of dollars, have been awarded without full and open competition," Levin said. "I am also concerned by reports that important safeguards have been ignored and that excessive rates have been charged under some of these contracts. We know far too little about the way in which subcontracts are being awarded – for example, whether they are being awarded to the best qualified companies, or to the best-connected companies. We need an independent audit of these issues to ensure that the taxpayers' hard-earned money is not being wasted."
