DynCorp Has Refunded $40.8 Million in U.S. War Work Billings

by Tony Capaccio at Bloomberg  June 6, 2011

DynCorp International Inc., the largest contractor in Afghanistan, has refunded $40.8 million to the U.S. State Department for work in Iraq and Afghanistan, Under Secretary for Management Patrick Kennedy said today.

The department is seeking an additional $37.9 million in refunds from Falls Church, Virginia-based DynCorp, he said at a hearing of the Commission on Wartime Contracting.

The State Department’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, which is handling DynCorp’s Iraq police training contract, is conducting a “100 percent reconciliation” of all DynCorp Iraq invoices “going back prior to 2006,” Kennedy said.

“We have not been able to verify the numbers cited, at this point,” said DynCorp spokeswoman Ashley Burke in an e- mail. DynCorp is a unit of New York-based Cerberus Capital Management LP.

“We respect and support the important role of oversight in government contracting, and are working closely with our customer and outside auditors to answer any questions that have been asked, provide additional documentation, if needed, and ensure that any issues are addressed to the satisfaction of the government,” she said.

Audit Warnings

The “reconciliation” is necessary because the INL Bureau “has no confidence in the accuracy of over $1 billion in charges” from DynCorp on early police training billings, the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, Stuart Bowen, said in a Jan. 25, 2010, audit.
