B-184112: Published: Jan 13, 1977. Publicly Released: Dec 30, 1983.
- Full Report:
Three allegations made by contractors concerning the activities of certain employees of the New York Region of the Defense Contract Administration Services were reviewed: (1) service employees were misstating and omitting facts in official reports; (2) service employees were harassing contractors who had publicly stated their views concerning Services operations; and (3) a Service employee instructed subordinates to put several contractors out of business.
Services employees did omit or misstate certain information in preaward survey reports, but no-award recommendations did not result from these misstatements or omissions. No evidence was found of harassment of contractors. The statement concerning putting contractors out of business was made, but there was no evidence of intent to carry out the threat. The employee in question has been admonished.
