Senators Press Army to Step Up Contractor Suspensions

December 11, 2012

The Army is taking too long to suspend and debar unethical contractors working in Afghanistan, heightening the risk that funds could flow to terrorist groups, a group of senators has charged.

Led by Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., chairwoman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Contracting Oversight Subcommittee, the lawmakers expressed concern in a Dec. 7 letter to Army Secretary John McHugh and Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno about delays between the time the Army receives a referral on a questionable contractor and when it takes action to withhold future work.
