The Center for Public Integrity posted a new article by Nick Schwellenbach this month.  Schwellenbach reports that the number of Fraud Cases taken on by oversight officials fell at a time where Pentagon contracts were increasing at a rapid rate.  He notes that the past eight years the number of  defense contracting fraud and corruption cases sent by government investigators to prosecutors dropped markedly, while DOD referrals to the Justice Department for contract fraud and corruption decreased dramatically as well.  To read the rest of this well written article, go here:
