Congress To Probe Navy Contracting Practices And Multimillion-Dollar Bribery Scheme
The Navy Times offers a piece on Congress looking into the Navy's contracting practrices and the bribery scandal.
SAN DIEGO — The House Oversight Committee is looking into Navy contracting practices amid a widening federal probe into a multimillion-dollar bribery scheme involving a Singapore-based defense contractor accused of offering prostitution services and pricey vacations to Navy officers.
Rep. Darrell Issa’s office said Friday that Navy Secretary Ray Mabus is expected next week to brief the committee, which the California Republican chairs.
In a Jan. 28 letter sent to Mabus, Issa asked for copies of contracts between the Navy and defense contractor Leonard Glenn Francis, since 2009. He also requested the Navy’s total expenditures on port services — food, fuel, etc. — for the last five fiscal years.
