Pentagon to Boeing: We Want Our Money Back
Company officials met with Pentagon representatives on Wednesday in order to resolve that refund request.
The Pentagon’s inspector general found that its Defense Logistics Agency was excessively charged by reviewing a sample list of parts ordered under a 2009 “basic ordering agreement” for components and assemblies used on B-1B and B-52 bombers, E-3 surveillance aircraft, KC-135 tankers, Minuteman nuclear missiles, and AC-130U gunships, reported Bloomberg.
“We are meeting with DLA officials to understand and resolve issues” identified in the audit, “as well as address DLA’s letter requesting a voluntary repayment,” Paul Guse, a spokesman for Chicago-based Boeing, said in an emailed statement to the publication.
A 2011 inspector general’s audit of two Boeing contracts for an Army depot in Corpus Christi, Texas, uncovered approximately $13 million in overcharges on $23 million in orders.
