- Full Report:
In response to a congressional request, GAO provided information on its procedures for handling bid protests involving allegations of fraud or other criminal misconduct. GAO noted that: (1) it receives very few protests based on such allegations; and (2) when such allegations appear to be potentially meritorious, it refers the cases to the Department of Justice, the agency Inspector General, or its own fraud prevention group.
