Abstract : The Department of Defense (DOD) has some problems in its contracting workforce that make the department susceptible to procurement fraud. In fiscal year (FY) 2014, $285 billion was spent on federal contracts. In FY 2015, the DOD increased its obligation to $290 billion. The DOD committed more money than all other government agencies combined. In total, the U.S. Department of Justice in its annual evaluation stated that there were 4,801 United States government-wide fraud investigations in 2015.
