These articles questioned the Armys bidding practices in awarding purchase orders for language translation services. You asked us to investigate allegations regarding whether your constituents low bids for translation work were regularly passed over your constituent was denied contracts without explanation and there was any evidence of fraud, conflict of interest, deception, or improper circumvention of Army procurement regulations.
