DynCorp Should Refund $2 Million for Afghan Work, Audit Says

SF Chronicle with Bloomberg  July 7, 2011

The payments were made because contracting officials from State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs “did not always perform a detailed review of invoices prior to payment,” said the audit released today by the Pentagon and State Department inspectors general.
