The General Services Administration has added a web page that lists Pentagon contractors that have received waivers for new contracts despite having been barred from government work because of fraud-related charges.
The new page went live on Aug. 8, according to a GSA spokeswoman.
A recent Bloomberg Government story provided the first collective examination of the Defense Department’s “compelling reason determination” cases, in which the Pentagon overrides decisions barring contractors accused or convicted of bribery, fraud, theft, and other crimes from doing business with the government.
The agency has listed more than two dozen determinations, or waivers, including one case that appears not to have been previously revealed.
