Senator McCaskill Invites Public to Weigh in on Contracting Oversight

Senator McCaskill (D-MO), Chair of a newly formed Senate contracting oversight panel, is reaching out to the public for help with setting her agenda.   

 

According to Senator McCaskill, "Problems have occurred at every stage of the contracting process, from pre-award planning and requirements development through the recovery of overcharges.  The contracting workforce is no longer adequate to handle the volume and complexity of the contracting workload. And the lack of oversight has been an invitation to waste, fraud and abuse.  I'd like to hear from you.  What contract or program needs additional oversight?  What laws, regulations and policies need to be changed? What hearings would you like to see?"   

 

The senator encouraged recipients to offer their opinions through a Google online discussion forum at http://moderator.appspot.com/#16/e=21780  or by e-mailing the subcommittee at contracting_oversight@mccaskill.senate.gov or whistleblowers@mccaskill.senate.gov.

 

An announcement on the date and topic of the first hearing is expected to be released in the next two weeks.
