Description

As the Washington Correspondent for Mother Jones, Scherer's investigation looks into the world of federal contracting and how a lack of government oversight is decreasing competition among contractors. "In 2002, nearly 52 percent of the contract dollars, about $138 billion, was awarded without competition, attracted only one bidder, or used multiple-award contracts or federal purchase cards--practices that auditors say are often used to skirt federal requirements to compete contracts."
