From the report: “The Department of Defense (DOD) faces numerous types of procurement fraud schemes (see figure). For example, in January 2015, the owner of a contracting firm pleaded guilty to bribing DOD officials and defrauding DOD of tens of millions of dollars by overbilling for goods and services. To combat departmentwide fraud risks, DOD has taken initial steps that generally align with GAO’s Fraud Risk Framework. However, DOD has not finalized and implemented a comprehensive approach.”
