Senate Democratic Policy and Communications Committee

The Senate Democratic Policy and Communications Committee (previously the Democratic Policy Committee, or DPC) is an advisory board to the democratic leadership in Congress. It serves as a research, policy-formulating, and communications arm for Senate Democrats. The Committee has held numerous hearings on fraud, waste and contractor misconduct in Iraq and Afghanistan. The hearings focused almost exclusively on contractor fraud and waste by Halliburton or its subsidiary, Kellogg, Brown and Root. Private security contractors were investigated in Hearing 39 (2006).
