WASHINGTON, April 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Corporate Whistleblower Center is urging employees of private contractors that have bilked the Defense Department on service, military training, or transportation contracts related to the wars in Iraq, or Afghanistan to call them anytime at 866-714-6466, if they possess well documented proof of multi-million dollar overbilling, or fraud. As the Center would like to explain there can be significant rewards for this type of information. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
The Corporate Whistleblower Center is urging accounting managers, or employees of a contractor providing services to the Department of Defense to call them at 866-714-6466, if they have well documented proof of the contractor billing for services in Iraq, or Afghanistan that were either never provided, or significantly inflated, because this type of information can result in significant rewards.
The Center says, "What most US taxpayers do not realize is the United States government is still pumping money into Iraq, and Afghanistan, and we are certain the amount of billing for services never rendered, inflating fees for food, fuel, or material, and or for billing for jobs that were poorly executed has got to be in the billions of dollars, or more. If you work for a private contractor, and you have specific information about a contractor overbilling, or defrauding the DOD out of millions, or more please call us anytime, or contact us via our web site." http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
According to a February 2013 news Article in World Affairs, "Then, "in 2007, the Commission on Army Acquisition and Program Management" found that contract managers "had no experience managing contracts" and received inappropriate training. In 2011, the report added, the congressional Commission on Wartime Contracting reported "poor performance by contractors had resulted in wasted resources, missions not being achieved and the loss of lives."
And then, in that same report, the GAO cited several embarrassing miscarriages:
- For $130,000, Afghan contractors built a large shower/bathroom facility "without holes in the walls or floors for plumbing and drains." What's more, the walls were constructed of "crumbling cinder blocks." The report blamed insufficient oversight. That was most certainly true. But in addition, UNICEF statistics show that seventy percent of Afghans have no access to a toilet and may in fact never have seen one. How could they know what's involved in installing them?
- Defense Department personnel told the GAO about "a dining facility in Afghanistan that was built without a kitchen," once again because of absent oversight.
- A guard tower "at a forward operating base was poorly constructed and unsafe to occupy. The staircase was unstable and not strong enough" to climb. As usual, the problem wasn't discovered until the tower was finished. "It had to be torn down."
- "In another instance, an entire compound of five buildings was built in the wrong location." It was supposed to be located within the military base's security walls, but the contractors inexplicably built the compound just outside—for $2.4 million. No one noticed until the project was completed. "The buildings could not be used." http://www.worldaffairsjournal.org/article/money-pit-monstrous-failure-us-aid-afghanistan
