Abstract:

We are providing this report for your review. We performed the audit in response to a referral from the DoD Hotline concerning an allegation regarding improper contract quality assurance practices by the Defense Contract Management Mea Operations Dallas, Texas DCMAO Dallas, on an Air Force contract for upgrading the Air Forces solar electro-optical network SEON. The complainant alleged that DCMAO Dallas showed favoritism to the contractor, Electrospace Systems, Inc. Electrospace, because DCMAO Dallas did not properly and completely investigate the cause of a product deficiency. The complainant stated that the alleged favoritism occurred when DCMAO Dallas prepared an investigation report that contained only the contractors response to a product quality deficiency report pQDR with no Government input. The complainant further stated that the investigative report was full of erroneous findings.
