Abstract:

This report is the second of two reports that discuss a complaint to the Defense Hoffine that work was being improperly directed by a program manager to a Section 8a contractor on a sole-source basis and that labor costs charged to DoD contracts were questionable. The first report discusses sole-source Section 8a contracts awarded by the Small Business Administration for the Naval Air Systems Command. This report discusses the use by the Navy Medium Altitude Endurance Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Joint Project Office the Joint Project Office of intra-agency contracting with other Navy organizations to award sole-source orders for contracted services to Battlespace, Incorporated Battlespace. The report also discusses questionable labor costs that Battlespace charged to DoD contracts. Battlespace, or previously, the person who subsequently became the president of Battlespace, has provided continuous support to the Joint Project Office since October 1992 as a subcontractor or consultant on five prime contracts. The prime contracts were awarded by three Navy organizations and administered by five DoD organizations. Three of the contracts are time-and-materials contracts, one is a firm- fixed-price contract, and the fifth is a cost-plus-fixed-fee contract. The periods of rformance on the five contracts overlap, and the total subcontract amount is about 6.4 million.
