Abstract:

We found that contract administration at the Army, Navy, and Air Force installations we visited was not adequate to prevent intentional or unintentional overcharges. Several installations paid for much more work than was done some ordered unnecessary work and accepted inferior work and lower prices were not obtained at some because requirements forecasts were unrealistic, work specifications were inappropriate or poorly written, and price proposals were not properly analyzed.
