9781287235064: Contract Pricing: Material Prices Overstated on Ground/Vehicular Laser Locator Designators: Nsiad-88-25

GAO reviewed the pricing of an Army contract for Ground/Vehicular Laser Locator Designators to determine whether the: (1) contractor complied with the Truth in Negotiations Act in providing accurate, complete, and current cost or pricing data; and (2) contracting officer negotiated fair and reasonable prices.
GAO found that the contractor overstated target prices by $2,339,601, including overhead and profit, because it: (1) failed to disclose current materiel prices; (2) made a computation error; and (3) failed to disclose an updated bill of materiel. GAO also found that contract prices were overstated by an additional $1,777,396, including overhead and profit, because the contracting officer: (1) did not rely on an audit recommendation regarding anticipated materiel price reductions between the contractor and its vendors; and (2) accepted escalation on materiel costs that the contractor had based on firm vendor quotations.
