ABSTRACT

Internal Controls over the Emergency Disaster Relief Transportation Services Contract   [open pdf - 322KB]

During times of national emergency, the Dept of Transportation is responsible for coordinating and providing transportation support. To support these responsibilities, the FAA awarded a contract to Landstar to provide the bulk of transportation services. The report found two issues of great concern which the FAA took immediate actions to address: (1) Contracting officers needed better information to evaluate contractor price quotes. Prices estimates were regularly accepted from Landstar without supporting documentation. (2) Better documentation of the actual goods and services provided was needed before authorizing payment. At the time of the visit, an overpayment to Landstar of $33 million was discovered and promptly repaid.
