The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "LOGCAP stands for Logistics Civil Augmentation Program, and it's the way the US Army sustains itself all over the world, for the most part, by utilizing private contractors. In our opinion, LOGCAP is also a gigantic sinkhole of waste, fraud, and abuse of taxpayer money. This is potentially a great way for a whistleblower to get rich, provided they have well documented proof. If you are an employee, or insider, with proof a contractor has fleeced the taxpayer by overbilling the DOD on a LOGCAP contract, please call us anytime at 866-714-6466."
In a recent development according to a January 2014 United States Department of Justice press release, KBR allegedly made claims to the government, knowing them to be false. They did so under a contract with the Army to provide wartime logistical support, otherwise known as the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program (LOGCAP) III. The award of LOGCAP III allegedly paved the way for the company to become a critical source of logistical support services in Iraq, which included transportation, maintenance, food, shelter and facilities management. KBR performed many of these services through subcontracts awarded to foreign companies local to the region, such as La Nouvelle and First Kuwaiti.
In its complaint, filed in federal court in Rock Island, Ill., the government alleged that, in 2003 and 2004, KBR employees took kickbacks from La Nouvelle and First Kuwaiti in connection with the award and oversight of subcontracts awarded to these companies. KBR then allegedly claimed reimbursement from the government for costs it incurred under the subcontracts that allegedly were inflated, excessive, or for goods and services that were grossly deficient or not provided. For example, KBR allegedly awarded La Nouvelle a subcontract to supply fuel tankers for more than three times the tankers’ value. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
