The DOD IG sought to determine whether the Mine Resilient Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle program office effectively procured armored vehicles in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation and DOD requirements. The DOD IG found that Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC) officials did not properly determine that contract prices were fair and reasonable when they awarded nine contracts in January 2007 for MRAP vehicles.  The contracting officials' acceptance of offered prices without attempting to obtain appropriate volume discounts may have resulted in potential lost savings of $45.6 million.

This audit included 86 contract actions on 42 DOD contracts for commercial items issued during FYs 2003 and 2004. The value of these actions was approximately $4.4 billion and each action reviewed was awarded for $15 million or more. Contracting officials did not adequately justify the commercial nature of 35 of 42 (83 percent) commercial contracts for defense systems and subsystems awarded in FYs 2003 and 2004. As a result, contracting officials inappropriately awarded contracting actions that did not achieve the benefits of buying truly commercial products and relinquished price and other oversight protections under the Truth in Negotiations Act that would have allowed better visibility to establish fair and reasonable prices.
