Report on the Audit of Howell Instruments, Incorporated
INSPECTOR GENERAL DEPT OF DEFENSE ARLINGTON VA
Pagination or Media Count:
This is our final report on the audit of Howell Instruments, Inc., for your information and use. We made the audit from February through September 1989. We originally issued five draft reports on Howell Instruments defective pricing, which were referred to the Defense Criminal Investigative Service DCIS. After receipt of subpoenaed information, DCIS requested that we perform a defective pricing audit of transactions covering a 6-year period at Howell Instruments, Inc., Howell. This report summarizes the results of the DCIS request audit and incorporates the results of the five draft reports. The objective of the audit was to determine whether Howell submitted accurate, complete and current cost or pricing data in connection with DoD contracts and specifically whether Howell disclosed to Government negotiators that labor and other operating expenses at its Puerto Rican subsidiaries were lower than those proposed and certified.
