Contract Pricing Problems at Corpus Christi Army Depot

A May 2011 Department of Defense Inspector General audit of the Army Aviation and Missile Life Cycle Management Command’s (AMCOM) contract with Boeing to support the Corpus Christi Army Depot (CCAD) found that Boeing submitted cost and pricing data that was not current, complete, and accurate. The report calculated that Boeing charged the Army about $13 million (131.5 percent) more than fair and reasonable prices for 18 spare helicopter parts. The audit also found that Boeing owed the Army an additional refund of $538,688 because it did not meet requirements in a subsequent contract phase. Boeing issued the Army a credit for $324,616 for one of the defectively priced parts and provided additional refunds of about $1.3 million.
